When progress seems to abscond,
when digression seems to supersede,
it might just seem, it might just be –
that progress has but skipped and leaped, indeed.

What force does pillage now, patience is gifted soon.

A step forward is one more than infinite retreats, absent.

Headway exists where setbacks are stalled.

What gives pique the impression of digression, or even regression, patience may find progression.

Have patience when the going gets tough, with wisdom to know that you are just getting going.

A plea for unnecessary help is a terrible waste of potential.

With pride is a toil spoiled.

Ore must be smelted before metal is poured.

A dirty diner let’s another do his dishes.

Religion is a last resort for the righteous.

For every inaction, there is a double-reaction.

A day in another’s shoes is the day before we ever understand our own shoes. Only after knowing others’ shoes and then our own, are we aware of our feet, aware of how our feet fit into this world -and that this world is made up mostly of others’ feet.

Who is not in the present, is absent.
