In aphorism, proverb on 20120802 at 23:59

Maintain real dialogue with those in rash disagreement, for worse than rare disaccord is rife division.

No matter which evil you are fighting, you are still fighting. To negate evil, do not entertain it, only be its antithesis.

What good is the purest of water if it will not irrigate the driest of dirt?

No one can stop you from being who you want to be, without your permission.

Turn away from darkness, but never hide your light.

The filth may stop at the bottom, but it originates at the top.

The crumbs may rest on the floor, but the loaf is cut from above.

The fool cook mops first the floor and wipes second the counter.

In aphorism, haiku, poetry, proverb on 20110808 at 21:00

The acorn that falls far from the tree, lands on barren soil.

《free》
Free as a bird, you
dare to clip my wings; watch me
soar ever higher.

《hollow》
What an impression
this depression has on me-
such substance, your hollow.

Worry darns the holes of socks yet worn and scrubs the stains of trousers yet soiled.

Worry makes the weary.

In poetry, rumination on 20090331 at 16:39

《at least once》
I am a genius and a fool,
a gem and a tool,
the sky and the soil,
the harvest and the spoil.

《Minding Heart》
While my heart is soft,
brilliantly resilient,
it is my mind
that is strong,
never rigid.
