In aphorism, proverb on 20120510 at 23:57

The fool’s truth is not truth.

Trust takes time.

Trajectory with misdirection, is a truth twisted.

The fool share their trash, hide their treasures.

Exclusion will betray you in time; inclusion is loyal, now and forever, to you and to all.

Priorities are more than hopeful words, they are actions, our past actions. In the history of our beings, can we view our priorities.

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.

Money and medicine are no equals of wealth and health.

History is but fable, the present is but fact, the future is but fantasy.

Sooner a fool to rewrite history and foretell the future, than to change his present ways.

Translation exacts meaning; interpretation exacts expression.

Rank is a badge worn.

Short words are always long on feeling.

The art of accepting a compliment is humble denial.

A fool lavishes flattery, the wise bestow compliments.

One’s words are like stones, to be thrown at another or used to build another up.

One’s energy blows like the wind, destructively against a wall or constructively against a windmill.

A windmill rolls with the wind, not against it, and so exploits false opposition to gain true momentum.

Only with friction, does anything gain traction.

《on walls》
May any border, any wall constructed, be made with deliberation and great skill, such that when at last we soften to the wisdom of history and realize the foolishness that is cemented with each mortaring of every brick, we may retain and also preserve a symbol of foolishness overcome, to remind us that a wall should not divide two peoples, but span the divide -so as to join them.

If we are not actively in support of, then at best, we are passively in opposition of.

If we are not actively in opposition of, then at best, we are passively in support of.

With each act of contrariness, our actions are but tangible lies to ourselves. With each act of congruency, our actions are but tangible proof of our being.

The action taken creates history, the word spoken creates the present; the thought formed creates the future.

Tho’ another’s burden we might carry on our back, with clenched hands do we carry our own.

Every person holds a different memory; every nation writes a different history.

The more you do, the more you can do.

Where a party makes propaganda, a people makes protest.

What history manipulates, the future beholds.
