In aphorism, proverb on 20120802 at 23:59

Maintain real dialogue with those in rash disagreement, for worse than rare disaccord is rife division.

No matter which evil you are fighting, you are still fighting. To negate evil, do not entertain it, only be its antithesis.

What good is the purest of water if it will not irrigate the driest of dirt?

No one can stop you from being who you want to be, without your permission.

Turn away from darkness, but never hide your light.

The filth may stop at the bottom, but it originates at the top.

The crumbs may rest on the floor, but the loaf is cut from above.

The fool cook mops first the floor and wipes second the counter.

In aphorism, proverb, rumination on 20110119 at 12:49

Courage, not without the goading of desperation.

There are but two ways to display power: the power we give, the power we lose.

《On the Mathematics of Power》
The power of negation is seen in the struggle for power.
The power of subtraction is seen in the misuse of power.
The power of addition is seen in the joining of power.
The power of multiplication is seen in the giving of power.

《the ostrich》
You of fools,
Who deny the truth
Think it negates the truth…
Only and ever, a fool, to confirm.

To act without knowledge of the truth does not negate that truth, it confirms ignorance thereof.
