In aphorism, poetry, proverb on 20191230 at 23:55

Those who share, have something to give.

Those who share not, have nothing.

The fool will not look.
The lay cannot see.
The intellect will look.
The wise see.

Ear plugs made of ego, make the fool.

The wise prune the dead limbs by choice.

The fool go out on dead limb and prune by accident.

The fool cannibalizes their soul to feed their ego.

If there is no self-accountability given, there is no responsibility taken.

Ego is a gift held by fools and a burden lost by the wise.

A bully has back-up to compensate for an ego that otherwise has no defense.

The fool bystander fears the aggressor only when they have personal profit to gain.

I See You
Without your makeup
Without your muscles
With the bags under your eyes
With the softness in your thighs,
I see you.
Without your stoic self
Without your unapologetic self
With your hidden tears
With your vulnerable self,
I see you.
Past the violence you commit
For the harm you deny
Past the wall you have built
For the fear you feed,
I see you.
Beyond the smoke you toke
Beyond the drink you take
Through pain that feigns laughter
Though uncertainty that belies confidence,
I see you.
Despite your failures
Not in spite of your successes
So busy with accomplishments
So boastful of your efforts,
I see you
As the tender soul
As the terrified one
Who strives without
Who struggles onward,
I see you.
Never with an apology
Ever with the denial
Hardly the recognition
Rarely the action,
I see you.
For the day shall come
Only after the night concedes
With only the hope that
you’ll see another, too.

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.

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.

20120510

In aphorism, proverb on 20120510 at 23:57

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.

20110920

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.

20110811

In aphorism, proverb on 20110811 at 14:20

Action follows values,
values follow desire,
desire follows choice.

Values are the mold into which desire is poured and action is set.

20110807

In aphorism, proverb on 20110807 at 20:54

Indecision is a decision.

Action speaks louder than words; lack of action, even louder.

“will let go” is but “to let go”; the future is but the infinitive.
“let go” is but “letting go”; the past tense is but the present continuous.

A fool drops what the wise let go.

20110802

In aphorism, proverb on 20110802 at 21:45

Small matters, especially, matter.

Beware the puddle on a cloudless day.

An eggshell cracks not of its own doing.

Belief, not rooted in action, is a lie.

Speculation is only as quality as the eyes that will it.

20110719

In aphorism, proverb on 20110719 at 10:14

The desert dweller prays for rain, but is prepared not for the storm.

The fool waits for the rains to sow his seeds.

The fool tames a beast he cannot feed.

Fantasy is the reality of the fool.

To judge another’s rationale is simply to impose one’s own motive upon another’s actions.

Climax not without the crescendo; lo, the fool is clueless, the wise is cognizant of.

Life, ’tis a puzzle.

Cast a worm, catch a fish.
[Other times, cast a worm, drown a worm.]

The fool act without understanding.
The lay do not act, understanding only of consequence.
The dilettante do not act, understanding not of impact.
The wise act with understanding of impact.

Consequence impels the fool; impact propels the wise.

Hold experience dearly, opinions loosely.

Project that which is beneficial to others;
Retain that which is worthy of possession;
Relinquish all else.

The wise balance output with input, teaching with learning, giving with receiving, apology with forgiveness.

Prudence in opinion, abundance in perception.

Share candid opinions as you would fresh onions -sparingly and with consideration.

From the valley, espy the peak.

Cash not backed by gold is but pretty paper.
