In aphorism, proverb on 20090914 at 07:14

If you find it easy to count all of your misfortunes, it may be because it is too hard to tally all of your fortunes.

A fool, lacking virtue, seeks violence.

A burdened back is a broken back to the fool and a bettered back to the wise.

A truth exists, no matter how it is phrased or who ignores it.

The sun is set upon the horizon.

Virtue is like the horizon, always in sight, though less often reached.
