Those who share, have something to give.

Those who share not, have nothing.

The fool will not look.

The lay cannot see.

The intellect will look.

The wise see.

Ear plugs made of ego, make the fool.

The wise prune the dead limbs by choice.

The fool go out on dead limb and prune by accident.

The fool cannibalizes their soul to feed their ego.

If there is no self-accountability given, there is no responsibility taken.

Ego is a gift held by fools and a burden lost by the wise.

A bully has back-up to compensate for an ego that otherwise has no defense.

The fool bystander fears the aggressor only when they have personal profit to gain.

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.

Prune living limbs for growth; dismember dead limbs for life.

Learn from example, lead by example.

Who will not sow a seedling will never prune a tree.

Only a fool carries the weight of the water that is needed to quench the thirst of one foolish to carry such a weight.

Be weary to wear blinders that will get you there faster but without knowing how.
