Get tough with yourself. Knock it off, ya faker. Take a salt tablet, and get back to the battle. Sure, frustrations exist. But you don’t need that bottle. You don’t need that porn. You don’t need to give in to that moment of rage on the freeway. You’ve only convinced yourself you do

Tidak boleh para pemerintah membahagikan harta negara mengikut nafsu mereka seperti mana seorang pemilik harta membahagikan harta miliknya. Sebaliknya, para pemerintah hanyalah pemegang amanah, wakil dan utusan. Mereka bukan pemilik harta. Ini seperti yang Nabi s.a.w sabda: “Aku –demi Allah- tidak boleh memberi (harta awam) ataupun menghalang seseorang. Aku hanya pembahagi yang meletakkannya di mana sahaja aku diperintahkan”.

Furthermore, because complex systems are open systems, we need to understand the system’s complete environment before we can understand the system, and, of course, the environment is complex in itself. There is no human way of doing this. The knowledge we have of complex systems is based on the models we make of these systems, but in order to function as models–and not merely as repetition of the system–they have to reduce the complexity of the system. This means that some aspects of the system are always left out of consideration. The problem is compounded by the fact that that which is left out, interacts with the rest of the system in a non-linear way and we can therefore not predict what the effects of our reduction of the complexity will be, especially not as the system and its environment develops and transforms in time’
