Everything I know, I learnt from someone else…

02 Feb

When I reflect back on the things I do and the knowledge I have gained, I realise that everything I know, I have learnt from someone else. In all reality, there are very few things which I know as a result of me inventing that original thought….

The only originality that may be truly mine are the conculsions which have been derived through observation and synthesis of siutations. So I am now going to try my best to give credit to knowledge I have gained from others and
not pretend as if it was mine and to acknowledge when I have made and original thought.

I wonder if this is the same for other people too?

    recommended by a friend to look up your blog….looks like you have just started up

    if you browse RPK malaysia today’s you’ll find me sometimes…especially on anti-hadith themes

    I subscribe to your view…

    unfortunately the anti-hadith people think they can live without the hadith to understand Quran.

    I guess it is the anti-thesis of learning itself…

    It is interesting to note that to achive originality of thought requires that one meditate alone, however, to implement it, requires a community?

    If a tree falls deep in a jungle, does it make a sound if there is no one to hear it?
