Beware sunsets’ lure—
shadows at their longest warn,
darkness soon follows.

The fool tempt a rabbit with the worm and a fish with the carrot.

Let our tongues act as the filters that let only praise and positivity fall upon the ears of others.

Think on your blessings, and your tongue will know only praises.

The mind is mightier than a million missiles.

Know loneliness, not without first knowing friendship.

Beware the circle that casteth a square shadow.

A solid house crumbles not with the weight of heavy clouds, nor with the temptation of the first rain.

In aphorism, proverb on 20090328 at 15:33

Season a pot, not without heat or smoke high.

Project who you want to be, and that is who you are.

Even the big worm does not tempt a fish with purpose.

The traveler brings clarity home.

Travel allows one to know more clearly the meaning of home, by questioning it.

Why plant a seed, if only to let it thirst?

The truth stands where’er a fool lies.
