In aphorism, proverb on 20090926 at 09:04

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?

In poetry, rumination on 20090331 at 16:39

《at least once》
I am a genius and a fool,
a gem and a tool,
the sky and the soil,
the harvest and the spoil.

《Minding Heart》
While my heart is soft,
brilliantly resilient,
it is my mind
that is strong,
never rigid.
