Hope can ease your burden, but only you can carry your load.

For my news, I read the funnies. For my fun, I read the news.

Ask not a fish for the forecasted precipitation.

A fish’s forecast is cast.

To be imitated is to have inspired.

Who suprastands another, awaits a lesson to befall.

《prayer》
Could I want, what more
Than to realize the error in my ways
I pray it come before
the end of my days.

《unequivocal》
vanity = beauty + pride
pride = vanity – beauty
beauty = vanity – pride

《conflicted》
he said he didn’t like conflict.
i said i didn’t understand-
passive aggressive behavior
is more conflict than i could stand.

Life’s lessons are learned not in a book, but in our heart.
[心得不是用书学的,就是用心学的]

No polish in the world can keep the dirt off a shoe’s sole.

The vast expanse unknown might be a desert; it might be an ocean.

With but a single footprint is the earth moved.

If you have lost your focus in life, look to the lessons of photography: bring more light to your subject or reduce the speed.

The rich and the poor alike go barefoot.

The masses will follow a fool idea from the sound mind before following a sound idea from the mind fool.

The fool accept gratitude without humility.

If you want to make an impression, be riveting; if you want to shape, be flexible.

Water fits in a vase only by conforming.

Sooner the ice to melt than the water to freeze.

The freeze that comes before the thaw is Autumn; the thaw that comes before the freeze is Spring.

A good writer not only gives new ideas, but enables new ideas.

why aphorisms?

In aphorism, proverb, rumination on 20090917 at 05:48

I will be sharing reflections of truths that appear to me.

What day is not filled with truths, lesson learned, reflections shown? Rather than share the gore of [never-would-be] lore, I style my daily gleanings with aphoristic presentation and a love for linguistics.

Comments, compliments, constructive criticism… cordially encouraged!
