That there exists a bright side certainly and silently admits the presence of a dark side. To focus on but one side behooves no one.

In aphorism, proverb on 20101126 at 13:33

A fool listens with armor and speaks with bullets to an enemy perceived behind blinders.

Camouflage conceals cowardice; compassion reveals courage.

The fool carry a basket to fill; the wise carry a basket to empty.

The nimble mind can do more with clumsy hands than nimble hands can ever do with a clumsy mind.

A tree buries its roots in dirt, but never its trunk.

A weed will wind its way.

A brighter sun makes not a flower taller.

A step is part reach -and part push.

Flattery and fakery are not the equals of compliments and courtesy.

A candle’s light is brightest at the darkest of night.

Falsity is the front of the fool.

Walking beats mass transit feet down.

As mighty is the sun,
as brightly she shines,
it takes but one cloud
to chase her rays away.

One kind of fool eats a green apple today, unwilling to wait for the ripened tomorrow; another kind of fool waits for the ripened apple tomorrow, but goes hungry today.

《the light》
And the light of the midday
sun shone so brightly that even
the smallest shadow sought shelter
and was nowhere to be found.
