Lo, what end awaits the airtight if not a burst or a leak? Rather to be like the sieve, made of steel and yet capable of letting even mountains pass through.

The atheist has a responsibility to forgive that which even a god does not will and so ever condemns.

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.

Truth is transparency.

No democracy without transparency.

Democracy without transparency is dictatorship in disguise.

Subversion of the people is the greatest treason.

Who alone stands up to a government deserves the highest honor.

The government that wields its weapons against its people, yields implosion of the nation.

Truth cannot be silenced, only construed.

Who has something to hide, has something to reveal.

A smile is a heart worn outside; a frown is a heart worn out.

Where is knowledge gained, is responsibility assumed.
