Nationalistic sentiments are a last and desperate attempt to assign self-worth in the vain name of patriotiotism.

In aphorism, poetry, proverb on 20090305 at 12:50

A pearl is tied at two ends.

The pearl tied at one end only is a pearl lost.

《her words》
She spoke with sentences strung together
like pearls, bound as though one;
like a vine of prose, spruced with poetic foliage;
like a rose, dotted with thorns.

《the sky never lies》
What time asks,
we must produce.
Of our wills and her ways
of might and otherwise true –
the night skies lurk;
day skies ever blue.
And the eyes that see
are but the same still two.
