In aphorism, proverb, rumination on 20100130 at 13:42

Fear not the shadow before seeing its maker, for the night’s shadow falls farther than that of its kinded noon, and neither speak the truth.

The boastful exaggerate even their flaws.

A leader asks not for permission; a leader asks for support.

Poetry is to prose what wine is to vinegar.

To be a writer, talk less and write more.

《light of dark》

It is in the might of darkness near
that the humble soul asks simply
that the way light the path, and
lo, the blessed soul is blinded by the light.
that simply is but darkness’ wrath,
which never is what darkness hath.

《the sky never lies》
What time asks,
we must produce.
Of our wills and her ways
of might and otherwise true –
the night skies lurk;
day skies ever blue.
And the eyes that see
are but the same still two.

In aphorism, proverb on 20090119 at 13:28

Though a deed may be small, the action is grand.

The prize not shared is lost to all.

Pride is a request for appreciation, asked in the form of a sentence.
