There is greatness in the smallest of actions, if only we pause to recognize what is easier to overlook. 

The fool praise the oak and belittle the acorn.

Mind the acorn and the oak will stand in its own. 

With naïveté do we inhale without understanding of how to exhale.

A good story is part struggle and part success. A great story is pure struggle.

If time is a luxury, busyness is poverty.

Wisdom is lost on fools’ ears. Ignorance is found on fools’ tongues.

If to ignore something is intentional, then ignorance is an act of intention.

A waste is a terrible thing to mind.

To accept that the world turns is to wax pragmatically.
To question why the world turns is to wax existentially.
To propose how the world turns is to wax analytically.
To understand how the world might turn better is to wax psychologically.

Not even the wise escape error, but many a fool excuse apology.

An ounce of awareness is worth more than a pound of action.

Where the captain hails, the oarsmen will row.

【How to Keep an Auto, Mobile】

One can pause to appreciate all that is wonderful about a most luxurious auto -its good looks, its comfort, its atmosphere, its engineered design, even the way the engine roars.

Yet, the most luxurious automobile is anything but mobile, if without replenished fuel or properly inflated tires. Without pausing to address a draining tank or deflating tire, the auto is mobile no more.

With sustenance no more and as with lungs collapsed, all that remains of the auto is a model, a shell of a substitute.

That, and a question: how to keep an auto, mobile?

One might appreciate its beauty, which surpasses that of any other. Alas, this will not keep the auto, mobile.

One might describe the comfort of the cabin, which none other has the ability to so please. But this will not keep the auto, mobile.

One might ascertain the degree to which one is rejuvenated while seated inside, as none other has the power to realize. Neither will this keep the auto, mobile.

One might detail the marvels of its engineering feats, surpassing all other models that dare to rival its arrival. Nor will this keep the auto, mobile.

One might confirm the strong rumble of the engine’s firing, still like the best and better than most. But even this will not keep the auto, mobile.

Alternately, if an auto should leave its owner waylaid on the side of the road, what is the best way to get mobile again?

Now then, a waning tank or flattened tire could have been avoided with proper and timely maintenance, certainly not with knowing avoidance of these responsibilities.

Even in times of the accidental roadside nail, it is only with patch or replacement that the auto can return to full glory.

The wise relish in the opportunity to refuel or to fix the flat and so are gifted with powers of healing, not to mention a return to the auto, mobile again. The fool ignore signs of warning and fixate instead on times of yore, unwilling to admit the present fault, and are left only to bemoan or disregard the auto, mobile no more.

For in times of disrepair, it behooves even the best of the best to pause and assess, to admit and duly address a manner of repair.

Indeed, a reality of disrepair is done no favors in finding praise and recalling the nostalgia of the good ol’ days of mobile, which is not to posit the futility of praise and nostalgia.

Wisdom lies not in the simple possession of knowledge, but in the timely wielding of said knowledge.

To ever appreciate goodness in times of advantage, also to prevent or so minimize misfortune during those times of advantage, and not in the least, to be quick to resolve conflict arisen in times of disadvantage.

To cherish the auto at one’s dispense, to maintain properly the air, oil, and fuel when levels hint of faltering, to fill the tank or fix the flat when it befalls even the diligent.

Never with neglect, neither with excuse, nor with retaliative cursing, and ever with appropriate appreciation, attention, and action.

That is how one keeps an auto, mobile.

In aphorism, proverb, rumination on 20120516 at 23:59

Without an outrage, a wrong is not a scandal.

Impatience is the supernatural disappointment of mortal expectations.

Rome wasn’t built in a day, but Earth… was?

Who imagine forgiveness, realize peace. Who imagine revenge, realize war.

Imagine a society that accepts its responsibility to support each person as equally as it expects each person to respect its rule. Imagine if just one person supported a single other person, regardless of their imperfect past, embracing them for who they have the potential to be. Imagine a society that can forgive each other, that we may realize a future together.

To become independent is to be freed.

Independence is a form of freedom. Dependence is a form of captivity.

The independent must collaborate, the dependent must delegate.

The guilty act defensively, the guiltless need not act -they are defenseless.

Who is without guilt is without need for defense.

The fool argue a truth with a falsity.

Calling a piece of shit “a piece of shit” is not to be negative, it is to acknowledge truth, to refuse judgment.

To compliment where an insult is due is to refuse the truth.

Who deny the truth fool themselves.

Being me is the greatest challenge I could ever face -when I do that, everything else is a cinch. When I don’t, everything is a task.

The greatest deception, the greatest revelation -is of the self.

The fool’s truth is not truth.

Trust takes time.

Trajectory with misdirection, is a truth twisted.

The fool share their trash, hide their treasures.

Exclusion will betray you in time; inclusion is loyal, now and forever, to you and to all.

Priorities are more than hopeful words, they are actions, our past actions. In the history of our beings, can we view our priorities.

Ability, without acting on the ability, is perhaps a greater disability than to never have had the ability.

If another is in need, and I do not help -I have so wasted an opportunity to exercise my ability, and in doing so, I have given up my ability. I am without ability.

A few create the system.
Many perpetuate the system.
Some work the system.
Too few challenge the system.

History shapes us.
Culture enables us.
Humanity entitles us.
Choice defines us.

I am as much a product of my own choice as I am of genetics or environment.

The fool tempt a rabbit with the worm and a fish with the carrot.

Let our tongues act as the filters that let only praise and positivity fall upon the ears of others.

Think on your blessings, and your tongue will know only praises.

The mind is mightier than a million missiles.

Know loneliness, not without first knowing friendship.

In aphorism, proverb on 20110920 at 15:43

The fool vindicate their fantasy as reality and delude their reality as others’ fantasy.

If our principles do not follow truths, then our subsequent actions are but deceptions manifested unto ourselves.
