Stonepeace (931-940)


[931]

Admitting a mistake made
without making amends
is to make another mistake.

[932]

To always pretend
to be without fault
is to always be with fault.

[933]

Without personal analysis,
whose analysis should you believe in?
Even finding a good analysis needs your analysis.

[934]

Minimise the nonsensical
and maximise the sensible.

[935]

The foolish are impressed
by ‘great’ words of the foolish.
The wise are impressed
by great deeds of the wise.

[936]

Always be ruled
by your moral wisdom;
never by anyone
with anything else.

[937]

If weapon usage
cannot be controlled well,
weapon supply
must be controlled well.

[938]

If you always
play the victim in your life,
you will never
be the hero in anyone’s life,
not even in your own.

[939]

Those who confuse you
because they cannot convince you
are convinced they can confuse you.
Prove them otherwise.

[940]

The first thing not to waste
is precious time,
which is life itself –
both yours and others’.
