Which is rarer, the jewel in the rough or the eye that sees it? 

Precious is the jewel that has been discovered, unlike objects of abundance, for its worth is, if only in that it is valued.

A blanket of stars is ne’er for sale, ne’er for purchase, only for beholding or forsaking.

If humility is apt to follow certainty, perchance enlightenment stands to follow uncertainty. 

The future is often more than we could hope for, if not what we expect.

If it is to be found out there, it must first be discovered in here.

Who discovers the world without discovering the self has fooled oneself twice.

Fantasy may not be feasible, but it is not futile.

Music is an elixir that allows the brain to just be.

To refuse is to resist;
To need, is to subsist;
To desire, is to exist;
To give, is not to have missed.

To dream without living is an illusion; to live without dreaming is quietus.

The fool are careless with sparks in a dry field.

The fool open a can of worms without intention of going fishing.

Is not a gem, before discovery, still a gem?

A gem is not formed overnight.

If not by drug, by religion, by love – by what do you fall?

The fool lives in an absolute world, in a limited way; the wise live in a relative world, in an unconditional way.

The hungry fool pays no heed to a rock; the wise, with a lift, is greeted with grubs.

The truth stands, but a lie lays low.

If mankind is not kind, what kind of man is he?
