“Nothing, nothing, my friend; what I have told you:
I am not sure of anything, I know nothing…”
–Jorge Luis Borges

sus kung buhi pa si borges karon, ako jud sya halukan ug taman hangtud malipong na sya. sa tinuod lang, mao ni ang ako ganahan sa usa ka tawo–maka-admit na sya walay nahibaw-an susama sa ubang mga iskolars o henyo sa kalibutan nga nabuhi sa way hunong ug pangita sa mga bag-ong nasayran ug mga pagtan-aw sa kalibutan.

kining “quote” nakuha nako sa blog ni januar yap ug sa tinuod lang, ingun ani pud si januar, sa akong pagkahibalo kaniya. unassuming idiot savant. (bleh)

    Long time ago, my friend put up a small poster in front of his study desk that reads:

    “Everything is possible! Because nothing is impossible!”

    He used it to motivate himself to study. However, after one semester, we decided to change it to:

    “Not everything is possible! Because something is impossible!”
