In aphorism, proverb on 20090929 at 08:10

The bee that stings never does again.

The wise is aware of his ignorance, but the fool is ignorant even of his awareness.

The smoking hand is an idle hand.

The dreaming mind is a sleeping mind.

Who wears a shoe is never at home.

A lawn seeded is a lawn mowed.

The dry well is a lonely well.

A color is worn in season’s time.

The single ply does not fray.

A ripened fruit falls free from the vine; the immature cling fast.

In aphorism, proverb, rumination on 20090928 at 21:27

Suppose religion were superstition, that God were a god, that the creator were man.

The dreaming mind is a sleeping head.

Who wears a shoe is never at home.

A lawn seeded awaits a mowing.

The dry well is a desolate well.

A color is worn in a season’s time.

The single ply does not fray.

A smoking hand is an idle hand.

A ripened fruit falls from the vine; lo, the immature cling fast.

But with a heart of gold, is one rich.

‘Tis better to break an egg than let it crack.

20090926

In aphorism, proverb on 20090926 at 09:04

Is not a gem, before discovery, still a gem?

A gem is not formed overnight.

If not by drug, by religion, by love – by what do you fall?

The fool lives in an absolute world, in a limited way; the wise live in a relative world, in an unconditional way.

The hungry fool pays no heed to a rock; the wise, with a lift, is greeted with grubs.

The truth stands, but a lie lays low.

If mankind is not kind, what kind of man is he?

Words are spoken with limits defined; silence permeates, no boundaries to build or ever tear down.

In rumination on 20090924 at 13:53

Ownership is begat of possession; possession is but for want of belonging; how ironic, then, that in belonging, we most certainly lose our identity. Dare it be true, then, that the more we own, the less of ourselves we retain?

20090924

In aphorism, proverb on 20090924 at 13:29

Conflict surrounds borders and orders; peace surrounds the fair that dare.

If man would pool resources instead of divide, how rich ever mankind would be.

Ownership is a pretext for envy and jealousy, a precursor of loss and liability.

An exclamation point, throttled horizontal, fancies a slide to the point.

20090923

In aphorism, proverb on 20090923 at 13:15

The right judge and condemn with self-righteous rule, modern-day Pharisees, unable to see their wrong.

Denial and refutal of the truth are but one, only to the fool.

20090922

In aphorism, proverb on 20090922 at 17:16

Practice peace over petty prejudice.

The strong personality is thought so, only by the weaker; the weak, only by the stronger.

What truth is shunned not by oblivion?

Who, in defense of of himself, denies the truth by defending the fool, is so too a fool.

In poetry, rumination on 20090919 at 15:31

《on oaks and the wise》
When, the day rises not from the eve?
Where, the oak stems not of the acorn?
Who, the wise was not once the fool?
