Oke, itu hanyalah sepenggal pemikiran Anne. Berikut ini ada sebuah metafora yang membantu kita untuk memahami apakah arti CINTA dan PERNIKAHAN. Selamat membaca . . . .
A student asked a teacher, “What is love?”
The teacher said, “In order to answer your question, go to the wheat field and choose the biggest wheat and come back.
But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick.”
The student went to the field, got through the first row, he saw one big wheat, but he wondered…. may be there is a bigger one later.
Then he saw another bigger one… But may be there is an even bigger one waiting for him.
Later, when he finished more than half of the wheat field, he started to realize that the wheat was not as big as the previous one he saw, he knew he had missed the biggest one, and he regretted.
So, he went back to the teacher empty handed.
The teacher told him, “…this is love… You keep looking for a better one, but later when you realize, you have already missed the person….”
“What is marriage then?” the student asked.
The teacher said, “In order to answer your question, go to the corn field and choose the biggest corn and come back. But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick.”
The student went to the corn field, this time he was careful not to repeat the previous mistake, when he reached the middle of the field, he picked one medium corn that he felt satisfied with and came back to the teacher.
The teacher told him, “This time you brought back a corn….
You looked for one that is just nice, and you had faith and believed this is the best one you can get…. This is marriage”
