To screw the system so as to save yourself, or to screw yourself so as to save the system? Says 91+ years of wisdom, without hesitation, “Screw the system [and save yourself.” For a broken system is not often a system worth saving, and by saving yourself, you will more importantly reinvent the system anew. Lo, the system worth saving may ask for your sacrifice, but never to screw yourself. Not ever.

Condone a system or create a system.

Words of wisdom are easier philosophized than realized.

It isn’t for fear of the unknown that we fear death, it is for fear of losing the present that we fear not living.

The Uneducated and the Ignorant are beasts of two different orders.

Order ranks below class.

Constructive criticism is a compliment to the wise, a complaint to the fool.

In aphorism, linguistics, proverb on 20110730 at 09:40

Every artist needs an agent.

Language is spectacular for the reason that it doesn’t need to make sense in order for it to have meaning.

The fool continue to water the shriveled plant.

The fool close their eyes to deny the darkness of night, as delusional in the absence of light as the ostrich who invites the night by burying his head in the sand at midday.

A fool farmer asks the rooster not to crow.

The fool silence the siren, suppressing a response in a deluded effort to deny a disaster.

Freedom is sacrificed in the name of safety and security, which are victim only to pride and honor.

One doesn’t need to love in order to be loved, nor does one need to be loved in order to love.

One need not disrespect a fool in order to not respect the foolish.

Nothing says desirable like untouchable.

In absence, imagination; in presence, surprise.

In aphorism, proverb on 20100206 at 12:30

The frugal save a cent where the stingy pinch a penny.

It is possible to take orders and also to give orders without the least bit of self-direction.

A mountain rises not without leaving a valley.

《Of Rebels and Orderlies》

The rebel resists where the orderly conforms:
The rebel procrastinates where the orderly prepares.
The rebel is late where the orderly is early.
The rebel is rejuvenated by pressure, where the orderly relaxes before a deadline appears.

The rebel bucks the system that the orderly perpetuates:
The rebel questions what the orderly accepts.
The rebel pushes a limit that the orderly abides by.
The rebel breaks a rule that the orderly obeys.

The enforcer guards a boundary that the creator draws anew.
The enforcer respects a law that the creator passes.
The enforcer supports a law that the creator amends.

The creator and enforcer of rules also fall to rebel and orderly.
Orderlies and enforcers are followers; rebels and creators are leaders.

Conflict surrounds borders and orders; peace surrounds the fair that dare.

If man would pool resources instead of divide, how rich ever mankind would be.

Ownership is a pretext for envy and jealousy, a precursor of loss and liability.

An exclamation point, throttled horizontal, fancies a slide to the point.

[on self-repression and morality]

Self-repression is not morality; it is a fear-based excuse to live under the denial of the expanse of emotions and opportunities that is gifted unto humanity. Self-repression is a lack of awareness, a lack of consciousness, and furthermore a lack of appreciation for what we have been given. It is often exercised in the [vain] name of a higher being/order/power. Its false front of morality is usually under the guise of intolerance for another’s audacity to experience life.
