In aphorism, proverb, rumination on 20100130 at 13:42

Fear not the shadow before seeing its maker, for the night’s shadow falls farther than that of its kinded noon, and neither speak the truth.

The boastful exaggerate even their flaws.

A leader asks not for permission; a leader asks for support.

Poetry is to prose what wine is to vinegar.

To be a writer, talk less and write more.

In aphorism, proverb on 20091022 at 02:07

What prose cannot clarify, is for poetry to mystify.

A legend is known for the life lived; a fool for his death served.

Truths are never wasted on fools.

Who dons a badge submits to a title.

Who fears the enemy, fears himself.

Who uses fear to make an enemy, fears also to face himself.

The art not labored is lost.

The greatest poverty is mental, not financial.

Words are the eternal fountain of wisdom, poetry, beauty.
