Questions

1. What are dreams made of? Hopes? Fantasies? Childhood memories? Are they made of anything? Or are they actually the result of something else? Or are dreams simply a trigger so we move forward?

2. What makes one a nationalist? Sometimes I wonder.  Do you love your country because the country has given you back something so valuable that you become devoted? Or is it simply because it's the place where you grew up and that's where your family is? So do you actually love the country, or simply the memories that took place inside it?

mimpi itu,
seperti kenangan yang dicatatkan untuk selalu diingat pada setiap lembar harian yang berganti.
mimpi itu...
adalah suatu keinginan yang dibangun untuk kemudian diwujudkan.
mimpi itu akan selalu ada dalam setiap hati yang punya cita-cita.

rasa cinta tanah air itu adalah hal yang terbangun dari sebuah kesadaran, dimana rasa memiliki itu bertumbuh menjadi rasa ingin menjaga dan menjadikan negeri itu lebih dari sekedar tempat tinggal.
nasionalis sendiri didasari oleh rasa cinta tanah air. bukan hanya sebagai negeri tempat dimana kita lahir, tapi juga menjadi bagian dari darah dan daging kita, dimana kita tumbuh dan hidup diatas tanahnya.

mencintai Indonesia bagi saya, adalah karena Indonesia adalah sesuatu yang menjadikan saya punya nama, bangga menjadi orang Indonesia adalah karena saya yakin menjadi seorang Indonesia adalah yang terbaik bagi saya dan semua anak-cucu saya kelak.

A dream, I believe, is made of a desire to see people better off <3 :) I believe it could result from our discontent, like eg one's discontent may be when he sees children not having sufficient funds to go to school, so his dream might be to build an NPO yang aims to fund the children's studies. I believe it's not the dream yang keeps him moving forward, but it's the feeling of contentment when seeing those children able to study again :)

A dream made of a fantasies when you want something. I mean, your passion. And about nationalist, I love this country because I born here and I know God plan something for me and this country.

I've heard that dreams (in your sleep) are made from parts of our memories.

I'm very interested in second question. Because I wonder about that too..

I think the nationalists love their country simply because they know their country (as a whole) more than any other country. Maybe because they live there most of the time or eventhough they don't live there, the culture roots is still so thick in their family. Seperti pepatah "tak kenal maka tak sayang"? Hehehe
