In aphorism, proverb on 20110707 at 01:39

Save a few that go dormant, plants continue to grow until there is no more life left -sometimes in visible spurts of vertical growth, other times in invisible hardiness.

Sometimes it takes a storm to quench a flower’s thirst.

The physical blossoms when the emotional is nourished, not diseased.

Time has the patience of infinity.

In aphorism, proverb on 20110217 at 12:09

There is a time to be the root, a time to be the stem, a time to be flower.

A root buries itself in the dark dirt, that the flower may bloom into the blue sky.

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.

Should a bee desire pollen, pollen is what a bee attaineth; lo, the flower feigns a frail, but fertile, victim.

The sun that sets early is late to rise.

Follow not the directions, draw not the maps; create the terrain and blaze the trail.

《On Names》
A name is an abbreviation of one’s being:
an acronym of metaphysical action,
an eponym of ancestral transcendence,
a simile of theoretical essence,
an interjection of acknowledged existence.

In aphorism, proverb on 20100730 at 08:43

Nourish a flower with only petals, and it will die; feed it with dirt and water and sunshine and a breeze, and it will bloom.

Who sets out in search of money will ne’er find riches; who sets out in search of inspiration will ne’er find ideas.

In aphorism, proverb on 20100510 at 11:38

Be as the flower: asking [for] little, giving much.

With sight do we see, with blindness do we speculate.

《to love》
the way a flower
answers the sun, yielding
only her bloom.
