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.

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.
