To the empty mind, nothing intimidates like a blank page. To the abundant mind, nothing invites like a blank page.

The ruins of disappointment are built on a foundation of expectation.

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 Strong have no more intention of tearing you down than do the Weak of building you up.

Do what you gotta do to be who you oughtta be.

A victim is snared in a trap that is set by himself.

Tolerance and acceptance are synonymous not with condonation, but more so, understanding.

A hammer can be used for bludgeoning or for building.

Regret is remedied only by action, never by apathy.

With little skill and without care is it easy to tear down; only with great will and much care is it possible to build up.

Short words are always long on feeling.

The art of accepting a compliment is humble denial.

A fool lavishes flattery, the wise bestow compliments.

One’s words are like stones, to be thrown at another or used to build another up.

One’s energy blows like the wind, destructively against a wall or constructively against a windmill.

A windmill rolls with the wind, not against it, and so exploits false opposition to gain true momentum.

Only with friction, does anything gain traction.

《on walls》
May any border, any wall constructed, be made with deliberation and great skill, such that when at last we soften to the wisdom of history and realize the foolishness that is cemented with each mortaring of every brick, we may retain and also preserve a symbol of foolishness overcome, to remind us that a wall should not divide two peoples, but span the divide -so as to join them.

Words are spoken with limits defined; silence permeates, no boundaries to build or ever tear down.

In aphorism, proverb on 20081008 at 19:57

A war of weapons is won with many; a war of words, with few.

If you build a wall around yourself, don’t forget to install a drain.

Words can change your view, but cannot change the facts.

What is not understood hovers subliminally in the background as a camouflaged backdrop; only those who understand are able to see it.

Who understands will see, who overlooks is blinded.

The wise oversee, the fool overlook.
