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.

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.
