In aphorism, proverb on 20090524 at 08:54

Who does good with hopes of just compensation has missed out on the reward of doing the good deed itself.

The secret to receiving the beatitudes is to ‘be’, not do.

What you do impacts who you are, but who you are more greatly impacts what you do.

Where talk is high, uptake is low.


In aphorism, proverb on 20090518 at 09:01

Oppression of a right is simply the acknowledgment of its very existence, coupled with the denial of that acknowledgment and a contentedness with that denial.

Recipes are edible gold.

No blood is shed when the brain is washed, but neither does the blood flow that giveth forth life.

Maintain control through peaceful cooperation; seize it not by pernicious coercion.

Creativity is simply the manifestation of another idea via inspiration.

There is perhaps nothing more humble and stolid as the rock.


In poetry on 20090516 at 09:13

There once was a rock that I saw from the East,

and when I walked to the West, still it was a rock.

But a rock it was, from all sides around; though

in circling its simplicity, I knew not just of the West

but the East and the wide expanse between, too.

Who has never left his home, will never know his neighbor

Who has never left his town, will never know a stranger.

Who has never left his own, will never know himself.

In aphorism, proverb on 20090507 at 10:33

What does not end up being a lesson is likely what shall kill you.


In aphorism, proverb on 20090504 at 10:41

Mental health is physical health, is economic health, is social health.

We must not only embrace and love that which is deserving, we must even more so seek ways to love that which is not deserving.

A truth wins the respect of all sides.
