The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.— Hans Hofmann, quoted in Zen and the Art of Stand-up Comedy (1998)
To understand matters rightly we should understand their details, and as that knowledge is almost infinite, our knowledge is always superficial and imperfect.— François VI, Duc de La Rochefoucauld, Reflections; or Sentences and Moral Maxims (1665–1678)
Be pitiful, for every man is fighting a hard battle.— Ian Maclaren, The British Weekly (1898)

Kampoeng Rawa is a tourist attraction in Ambarawa, Central Java, located within the green belt around Lake Rawa Pening. Opened in August 2012, it is owned and operated by twelve groups of farmers and fishermen who were funded by the Artha Prima Credit Union. It is intended to improve the welfare of local farmers and fishermen while promoting an understanding of the lake's ecology. Facilities include a floating restaurant, pendopo, crafts centre, fishing area, and docks. It has been challenged for its lack of permission to build in the green belt and the possible ecological impact.
