In aphorism, proverb on 20120520 at 23:58

When progress seems to abscond,
when digression seems to supersede,
it might just seem, it might just be –
that progress has but skipped and leaped, indeed.

What force does pillage now, patience is gifted soon.

A step forward is one more than infinite retreats, absent.

Headway exists where setbacks are stalled.

What gives pique the impression of digression, or even regression, patience may find progression.

Have patience when the going gets tough, with wisdom to know that you are just getting going.

A plea for unnecessary help is a terrible waste of potential.

With pride is a toil spoiled.

The fool seek dominance, the wise seek balance.

The fool make noise, the wise make music.

Art is unnecessary, and that is precisely what makes it necessary.

Music is a gift that we can give to or deny our children.

With fervor is there urgency in purpose.

Musicians are magicians.

A will is the wishes of the living respected by the living once the living days have passed on.

Music is the sound that the heart makes between beats.

But with the presence of a void does a note resonate, like the oxygen that fuels a flame.

The art of management is to exploit strength and mitigate weakness.

Exercise the metamuscle: think about your thinking.

《the war within》
War is something you
create
carry
kill
within your heart.

Think inside the box.
Think outside the box.
Think without the box.
Whether or not there is a box,
Think.

If creativity is a gift divined, innovation is but the labor of mortals.

That which is of value cannot be inherited, no more than the craft of throwing pottery can be instilled through the gifting of pots; that which is of value must be shaped and formed, through experience only, by one’s own doing.

It takes two to be stubborn, but only one to be an ass.

What is not held at hand is left near to heart.

No food can be disliked; only its preparation.

[on self-repression and morality]

Self-repression is not morality; it is a fear-based excuse to live under the denial of the expanse of emotions and opportunities that is gifted unto humanity. Self-repression is a lack of awareness, a lack of consciousness, and furthermore a lack of appreciation for what we have been given. It is often exercised in the [vain] name of a higher being/order/power. Its false front of morality is usually under the guise of intolerance for another’s audacity to experience life.

In aphorism, proverb on 20080818 at 15:05

Do much with little, or even with much, will you do little.

Who gifts the golden rule is never without it.

Only when the hand steals is a soul truly poor.

Questions engage, answers terminate.
