"Kenangan lama memang manis dan nyaman. Dan, kadang-kadang bergelora juga dengan gelombang-gelombang. Tetapi hanya itulah sahaja yang wujud sekarang ini. Sebuah kenangan adalah sebuah rahmat yang sulit dibuang. Ia memberi kesejahteraan di waktu-waktu seperti sekarang."

"Jadi gitu saja. Minta doa supaya rimba itu jadi huma. Besok minta doa lagi supaya semuanya tumbuh pisang, tumbuh serba tuk nenek. Lusa minta doa lagi supaya serba tuk nenek itu masuk melompat masuk bakul."

"Sebab itu Imam Hamad cuma mengikut ombak sahaja. Biar tidak usah cuba berbuat apa-apa. Biar Kaki Srengenge sekarang seperti Kaki Srengenge dahulu juga. Biar halaman rumah anak buah Kaki Srengenge semuanya jadi sarang puyuh. Biar balai raya jadi kandang kerbau putus jerat. Biar budak-budak muda terus-menerus ayun buah. Bukan sahaja orang lain, anaknya, Jantan, itupun bukan boleh disuruh buat apa-apa. Yang tahu hanya mengayun buah siang-siang. Malam mengatur tapak gayung. Kononnya nak sedia melawan Yahudi. Kononnya hari kiamat sudah tidak lama lagi. Kononnya perang sabil sudah dekat. Dajal nak turun. Biarkan. Biarkan."

  • Died: December 26, 2017
  • Born: in Sik, Kedah, Malaysia.

  • Description: Dato' Haji Shahnon bin Ahmad (born 1933 in Sik, Kedah) is a Malaysian writer, a National Laureate, and a former Member of Parliament. He was awarded with the National Literary Award in 1982. He is also a Professor Emeritus at Universiti Sains Malaysia in Penang.

    Shahnon has written a number books, one of the most notable being Shit @ PukiMak @ PM (1999), a controversial political satire. The book makes allegorical references to the ruling coalition government, Barisan Nasional (BN), its major component party, United Malays National Organisation (UMNO), and former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir bin Mohamed. There were attempts by the government to ban this book and to strip Shahnon of his literary title.

    Some novels written by Shahnon include Ranjau Sepanjang Jalan (1966)—which has been adapted into a film called Rice People directed by Cambodian film director Rithy Panh, Rentong (1965), Srengenge (1973)—which won the Malaysian Novel of the Year in 1970, and Terdedah (1965).

    Shahnon is also a member of opposition political party PAS. In the 1999 general election, he contested in the Parliamentary constituency of Sik (P.13) in which he won. He did not contest in the 2004 general election which saw PAS losing that seat to BN.
