If time is a luxury, busyness is poverty.

Wisdom is lost on fools’ ears. Ignorance is found on fools’ tongues.

If to ignore something is intentional, then ignorance is an act of intention.

A waste is a terrible thing to mind.

The only thing you can’t do, is the very thing you won’t do.

Who dares not journey from the valley, will never journey to the peak.

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.

Superstition is religion without the tool of conversion.

A threat made is an insecurity laid.

Thoughts manifest in our actions, escape via our voice.

A memory is a hard thing to let go of; a fantasy, even harder.

Short words are always long on feeling.

The art of accepting a compliment is humble denial.

A fool lavishes flattery, the wise bestow compliments.

One’s words are like stones, to be thrown at another or used to build another up.

One’s energy blows like the wind, destructively against a wall or constructively against a windmill.

A windmill rolls with the wind, not against it, and so exploits false opposition to gain true momentum.

Only with friction, does anything gain traction.

《on walls》
May any border, any wall constructed, be made with deliberation and great skill, such that when at last we soften to the wisdom of history and realize the foolishness that is cemented with each mortaring of every brick, we may retain and also preserve a symbol of foolishness overcome, to remind us that a wall should not divide two peoples, but span the divide -so as to join them.

The best things to give can be given even when the hands have nothing left to give.
