In aphorism, proverb on 20110721 at 21:03

Solidarity before compassion;
Compassion before forgiveness;
Forgiveness before peace.

Forgiveness and accountability are not mutually exclusive.

Forgiving and forgetting are not synonyms.

In aphorism, proverb on 20110714 at 19:20

The fool live an illusion; the wise live a dream.

The fool fear only what he will lose by sharing, not realizing what is to be gained by giving.

The fool fear loss and so do not share, do not give, and so too, have no room to receive. The wise lose fear and so share, give freely, and so too, are unburdened and able to receive.

It is impossible to hold both compassion and anger in the same heart.

It takes but two to create a movement: one to start it, another to follow it.

For every seed that sprouts, the earth is never more the same.

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.

In aphorism, poetry, proverb on 20101005 at 18:37

If the only way to fight fear is to understand it, then we must bear shields of tolerance and fashion weapons of compassion.

《Changdeok, Seoul》
Palace grounds made of stone
Palace walls made of wood
the setting sun hath shone
what might such beauty could.

《on people》
To be a connector, be compassionate.
To be a maven, be motivated.
To be a salesperson, be sincere.

In aphorism, proverb, rumination on 20081013 at 19:29

Having standards and having compassion are not mutually exclusive.

We do not lose our way by walking another path; we lose our way by stepping off the path of our choice.

In aphorism, proverb on 20080915 at 00:56

A rose bears thorns before it blooms.

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

A belief exists not because it presents the truth, but because it has the power to represent an unknown as the truth.

Compassion is another word for tolerance.
