Eddie Jaku, Seorang mantan korban holocaust yang telah berusia 98 tahun, memberikan nasihat tentang bagaimana caranya mendapatkan sebuah kehidupan yang baik: . “Kamu jangan pernah membenci. Kamu boleh mengatakan ‘aku tidak suka orang ini’, tapi jangan pernah membencinya. Kebencian adalah penyakit. Pertama, dia memang menghancurkan musuhmu, tapi kemudian dirimu juga. Dia menghancurkan dirimu. Kebencian. . Mereka bertanya kepadaku, apa rahasiaku? Rahasiaku adalah: seorang istri yang baik dan persahabatan. Persahabatan yang tak dapat kau beli. . Ketika aku berumur delapan tahun, ayahku berkata kepadaku, ‘Eddie, kita mendapatkan rasa puas yang lebih besar dalam memberi daripada menerima’. Pada saat itu aku mengira dia telah kehilangan akal sehatnya. Tidak. Sekarang, setelah aku mempunyai anak, cucu, dan cicit… apa yang kau beri, akan kembali kepadamu. Kau tak memberi apa-apa, dan kau pun tak akan mendapatkan apa-apa. . Jadi, ini penting. Aku ingin mengajarimu, kalian yang muda-muda: bila kau tak belajar dari kami, tak akan ada masa depan…” . . #eddiejaku #holocaustsurvivor #adviceforagoodlive #lifeadvice #nasihatkehidupan #ambilhikmahnya
