Judge only those with whom you can empathize.

Tomorrow will not feed the hunger of today.

Worry only of today’s hunger, and tomorrow will feed itself.

If one follows their gut, they will always have guts.

When information is framed, only education is tied, only knowledge sentenced, only wisdom slain.

Excuse befits the guilty; truth befits the innocent.

Hold a man to his capacity to err, and he will fail; hold the same man to his level of ability, and he will succeed.

When the Future quarrels with the Present, only the Past has the last word.

Complaining differs from venting, in that, it is with ability and without action to resolve the matter.

To be a friend, one must not lend a shoulder to lighten the burden, only lend an ear to lessen the brooding.

An omelette is not made by wishing for eggs.

Brilliant words only after brilliant eyes and brilliant ears.

《the night》
the night is a fickle lover
longing and lingering and
leaving me to morn.

《couth》
If one articulates
In triplets, would you say
one is high couth?

Truth is transparency.

No democracy without transparency.

Democracy without transparency is dictatorship in disguise.

Subversion of the people is the greatest treason.

Who alone stands up to a government deserves the highest honor.

The government that wields its weapons against its people, yields implosion of the nation.

Truth cannot be silenced, only construed.

Who has something to hide, has something to reveal.

A smile is a heart worn outside; a frown is a heart worn out.

Where is knowledge gained, is responsibility assumed.

Regret only the error never made; those made make an excellent teacher.

A teacher is not one who gives us knowledge, but one who challenges us to receive knowledge.

Knowledge ought be sought, gained, even shared, but never kept.

The knowledge kept is an ignorance carried to the grave.
