In aphorism, proverb on 20110704 at 10:20

The fool prematurely kills off the sickly plant that simply needed pruning, watering, and nurturing.

The fool sooner pulls a seedling than waters it, fearing it a weed and too impatient to find it a rose.

Prune the rose bush back to the ground, and watch her grow back stronger and more beautiful yet.

To avenge is to have mercy on; to ignore is to torture.

A mountain without a valley is but an elevated plain.

A mountain is born of its valley.

Remove choice from others and bear responsibility alone.

A single grain of sand weathers the beating of the entire ocean.

《green》
I am the jade mistress
like the rock so hard, my eyes
green with your desire.

so was sweetly crushed.

Great is the leader who can unite foes, not in purpose, but in recognizing similarity, extending fellowship, and furthering understanding.

Make-believe in childhood makes belief in adulthood.

Palace grounds made of stone
Palace walls made of wood
the setting sun hath shone
what might such beauty could.

A rose bears thorns before it blooms.

There’s nothing quite like singing, humming, or whistling to cure the blues.
