Fools will welcome your affection.
Most will tolerate your existence.
Few will question your truth.
The wise will accept your contradictions.

Be true to yourself, or be true to no one.

If you are untrue to even one, you are untrue to at least two — the other and yourself.

Knowing truth is knowing what it means to be alone.

Reality is not to scale.
Understanding is partial.
Perception is skewed.
Experience is biased.

Let everything without words say everything that words cannot say.

Every beaten path was forged first by a single person -why not you?

For every leader that someone cares to follow, there are many others that no one dares to follow.

A fool mocks from a safe distance.

Hold onto blessings dearly; misgivings more loosely.

If memories are a cache of the past, ideas are credits of the future.

Genuineness is flawed, by nature; only falsity reaches perfection, by man.

Worry is for warts.

The dog that tucks its tail scares none with its bark.

One’s view of the world depends on whether one’s head is held high or bowed low.

The fool mistake being critical for thinking critically.

The slow turtle delights in that he is not a cooked turtle.

《harmony》
A single face outward,
who to betray?
None, but the inner.

The hand that holds a stone for throwing, knows not of receiving.

How delicate the little child, standing next to the adult – and yet, none is braver.

The breath of blasphemy asphyxiates only the weak who lack.

Tall grass is meant for watching; cut grass, for walking.
