Choose Happiness


choose happiness - simplymarrimye


There's a difference between
being happy ang being successful

There are people
who are blessed with so much
yet wear a fake
smile on their face

There are some who 
easily get what they want
yet never value
what they have

Others may have abundance 
in wealth and power
but still feel sad, uncontented
and alone

You may be on top of the world
but your success is nothing
when your heart is 
empty and unhappy.

"Huling Kabanata"

Napapad kung saan
ang tanging pangarap ko.
Tinangay ng hangin
tinaboy sa malayo.
Nasaktan ang damdamin
takot nang mabigo.
Natitirang pag-asa'y
bigla pang naglaho.


Huling Kabanata - simplymarrimye

Ilang beses nang bumuo
ng isang kastilyo.
Inakalang matatag
matibay ang pagkakatayo.
Nadaanan lamang
ng mahinang bagyo,
nabuwal ang haligi't
kisap-mata'y gumuho.


Huling Kabanata - simplymarrimye

Kailan ba matatapos
matagal na paghihintay?
May dahilan pa kaya
ang magtiwala ng tunay?
Matatagpuan pa kaya
ang tinakdang kaugnay
nitong pusong sadyang
nawalan nang malay.

Titanic, A Timeless Love


"When love conquers the heart
No sacrifice is unbearable
No doubt is unthinkable
No fear is unsurpassable

For it is
timeless
unconditional
and powerful..."

TITANIC is a 1997 American epic romance-disaster film directed, written, co-produced, and co-edited by James Cameron. A fictionalized account of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, it stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as members of different social classes who fall in love aboard the ship during its ill-fated maiden voyage.

Cameron's inspiration for the film came from his fascination with shipwrecks; he felt a love story interspersed with the human loss would be essential to convey the emotional impact of the disaster. Production began in 1995, when Cameron shot footage of the actual Titanic wreck. The modern scenes on the research vessel were shot on board the Akademik Mstislav Keldysh, which Cameron had used as a base when filming the wreck. Scale models, computer-generated imagery, and a reconstruction of the Titanic built at Playas de Rosarito in Baja California were used to re-create the sinking. The film was partially funded by Paramount Pictures and 20th Century Fox. It was the most expensive film made at that time, with an estimated budget of $200 million.

Upon its release on December 19, 1997, Titanic achieved critical and commercial success. Nominated for fourteen Academy Awards, it tied All About Eve (1950) for the most Oscar nominations, and won eleven, including the awards for Best Picture and Best Director, tying Ben Hur (1959) for the most Oscars won by a single film. With an initial worldwide gross of over $1.84 billion, Titanic was the first film to reach the billion-dollar mark. It remained the highest-grossing film of all time until Cameron's 2009 film Avatar surpassed it in 2010. A 3D version of Titanic, released on April 4, 2012 to commemorate the centennial of the sinking, earned it an additional $343.6 million worldwide, pushing the film's worldwide total to $2.18 billion. It became the second film to gross more than $2 billion worldwide (after Avatar). In 2015 Titanic Live, a live orchestra version of the film, premiered in London.

Nobody's Perfect



To win pride over 
humility is plain 
hypocrisy

What is more difficult
 than to cleanse ones heart 
with hate and anger…
 to wash out overflowing pain 
and leave agony behind 

No such being can keep 
a faultless life.
Only a lucid conscience 
will survive and prevail.

Equality

Equality by Simplymarrimye


Understanding the world that is 
far different from the ordinary 
demands openness of mind 
and full acceptance of the fact 
that we all have the same right of existence...
