In aphorism, proverb on 20090831 at 06:09

That which is of value cannot be inherited, no more than the craft of throwing pottery can be instilled through the gifting of pots; that which is of value must be shaped and formed, through experience only, by one’s own doing.

It takes two to be stubborn, but only one to be an ass.

What is not held at hand is left near to heart.

No food can be disliked; only its preparation.

In aphorism, proverb on 20090430 at 10:44

The clearest way to see within is to be without.

There is a time to shine, and a time to let others shine.

The setting of the sun has a silent way of bidding farewell.

And the small root shall overcome even the most stubborn of the big rocks.

A blossom blooms only while the beauty begets and will whither wherever the wind wills.
