In aphorism, proverb on 20110704 at 10:20

The fool prematurely kills off the sickly plant that simply needed pruning, watering, and nurturing.

The fool sooner pulls a seedling than waters it, fearing it a weed and too impatient to find it a rose.

Prune the rose bush back to the ground, and watch her grow back stronger and more beautiful yet.

To avenge is to have mercy on; to ignore is to torture.

A mountain without a valley is but an elevated plain.

A mountain is born of its valley.

Remove choice from others and bear responsibility alone.

A single grain of sand weathers the beating of the entire ocean.

Diversity is a reality, not a verb; the challenge is to embrace and nurture it.

The fool that listens not, will hear not when deafness calls.

A false accuser trammels with threat, shackles with blame, condemns with guilt.

Tis easier for the fool to exit, than for the wise to enter. 出门容得,入门难得。

《genealogy of philosophical rebirth》
Curiosity encouraged begets information;
Information supported begets knowledge;
Knowledge nurtured begets understanding;
Understanding embraced begets wisdom;
Wisdom sustained begets curiosity.
