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.

In aphorism, proverb, rumination on 20111215 at 23:34

Ability, without acting on the ability, is perhaps a greater disability than to never have had the ability.

If another is in need, and I do not help -I have so wasted an opportunity to exercise my ability, and in doing so, I have given up my ability. I am without ability.

A few create the system.
Many perpetuate the system.
Some work the system.
Too few challenge the system.

History shapes us.
Culture enables us.
Humanity entitles us.
Choice defines us.

I am as much a product of my own choice as I am of genetics or environment.

No amount of willed blindness to an evil will help to erase its existence; in fact, likely the opposite is true.

In aphorism, proverb on 20091023 at 11:51

For a writer, the power to beckon comes not from the blank paper, but from the busy mind.

Tis quicker to punish, rather than to help, the criminal.

Tis easier to deliver judgment than understanding.

A crime committed is a hurt expressed.

Rather than say “I have no patience”, it is more truthful to say “I need patience”.

Society punishes, instead of helping, those in need.
