To screw the system so as to save yourself, or to screw yourself so as to save the system? Says 91+ years of wisdom, without hesitation, “Screw the system [and save yourself.” For a broken system is not often a system worth saving, and by saving yourself, you will more importantly reinvent the system anew. Lo, the system worth saving may ask for your sacrifice, but never to screw yourself. Not ever.

Condone a system or create a system.

Words of wisdom are easier philosophized than realized.

It isn’t for fear of the unknown that we fear death, it is for fear of losing the present that we fear not living.

The Uneducated and the Ignorant are beasts of two different orders.

Order ranks below class.

Constructive criticism is a compliment to the wise, a complaint to the fool.

The fool are rank-focused, guided by pride. The wise are task-focused, guided by progress.

Life without risk is certain death. Death with certain risk is life.

Who does not laugh is the joke.

The foe to a fool is so a foe to a fool’s friends, too.

You may very well be a product of your environment, so choose wisely your environment.

The fool call it a ‘mid-life crisis’; the wise call it a ‘near-death awakening’.

There is no greater death than that which is lived.

The fool live without breathing, the wise without expiring.

Ride out the storm; get your spurs on!

When at last the fool can hide no longer from the light of day, a hole is dug.

The path paved with death and destruction, never leads to peace.

Only where there is transparency, can there be truth.

Lyrics are but words, if are sung without substance.

What makes a stronger statement, than a question?

Circumstance justifies not behavior, but only rouses that which is dormant.

In aphorism, idiom, quote on 20091129 at 13:54

The truth need not justify itself to the fool.

Until death do we live, and so, until death shall we learn.

In aphorism, proverb on 20091022 at 02:07

What prose cannot clarify, is for poetry to mystify.

A legend is known for the life lived; a fool for his death served.

Truths are never wasted on fools.

Who dons a badge submits to a title.

Who fears the enemy, fears himself.

Who uses fear to make an enemy, fears also to face himself.

Politics is a balloon upon which promises are written and inflated.

We need tolerance most precisely when we don’t have it.

A walk away from birth, a walk towards death.

The exotic only exists to those who have not exited.
