In aphorism, proverb on 20111016 at 23:22

One’s past reflects one’s priorities, just as one’s priorities will forecast one’s future.

Erase prejudice; rewrite perception.

Others’ perceptions of you do not define you.

Truth is not a trend.

Beware the thief who steals with your consent.

Where growls a sheep, feigns a wolf.

Delusion is a choice.

when the sun shines true
blue sky, the clouds, imbue
an image of you.

Judge only those with whom you can empathize.

Tomorrow will not feed the hunger of today.

Worry only of today’s hunger, and tomorrow will feed itself.

If one follows their gut, they will always have guts.

When information is framed, only education is tied, only knowledge sentenced, only wisdom slain.

Excuse befits the guilty; truth befits the innocent.

Hold a man to his capacity to err, and he will fail; hold the same man to his level of ability, and he will succeed.

When the Future quarrels with the Present, only the Past has the last word.

Complaining differs from venting, in that, it is with ability and without action to resolve the matter.

To be a friend, one must not lend a shoulder to lighten the burden, only lend an ear to lessen the brooding.

An omelette is not made by wishing for eggs.

Brilliant words only after brilliant eyes and brilliant ears.

《the night》
the night is a fickle lover
longing and lingering and
leaving me to morn.

《couth》
If one articulates
In triplets, would you say
one is high couth?

You don’t need to share a common language to lend a helping hand.

In aphorism, proverb on 20100802 at 00:24

The fool think with their eyes; the wise see with their mind.

Procrastination is simply letting our brain get ahead of our hands.

You don’t have to know where you are going, just that you are going.

《the ostrich》
You of fools,
Who deny the truth
Think it negates the truth…
Only and ever, a fool, to confirm.

Below, a fractal of an interpretation of the Chinese idiom, 如鱼得水 – quite literally, “if fish, get water.” This phrase is often interpreted to be “like a fish back in water”; here is my tangent take, written for the wedding of two dear friends:

where there is bird,

there is sky.

where there is worm,

there is earth.

where there is fish,

there is water.

where there is two,

there is friendship.

where there is one,

there is love.

where there is you,

there is me.
