street light had intentions.
maple leaves had impact.
sidewalk, an innocent canvas.
shadows reflect consequence.
which belies truth?

A miracle is / but proper science experienced / by one who believes / but does not understand.

Which is rarer, the jewel in the rough or the eye that sees it? 

Precious is the jewel that has been discovered, unlike objects of abundance, for its worth is, if only in that it is valued.

A blanket of stars is ne’er for sale, ne’er for purchase, only for beholding or forsaking.

If humility is apt to follow certainty, perchance enlightenment stands to follow uncertainty. 

The future is often more than we could hope for, if not what we expect.

《Forecast for Life》
Risk with a chance of failure is opportunity with a chance of success.

Never deny a bad idea, for it may very well be the inspiration of a good idea. Accept, even welcome failure. The absence of failure belittles even a great success.

If success is not ultimately and existentially the overcoming of failure, wherein lies its acievement?

To screw the system so as to save yourself, or to screw yourself so as to save the system? Says 91+ years of wisdom, without hesitation, “Screw the system [and save yourself.” For a broken system is not often a system worth saving, and by saving yourself, you will more importantly reinvent the system anew. Lo, the system worth saving may ask for your sacrifice, but never to screw yourself. Not ever.

Condone a system or create a system.

Words of wisdom are easier philosophized than realized.

It isn’t for fear of the unknown that we fear death, it is for fear of losing the present that we fear not living.

The Uneducated and the Ignorant are beasts of two different orders.

Order ranks below class.

Constructive criticism is a compliment to the wise, a complaint to the fool.
