The Winds of Wisdom

Purification and perfection are not always the same things.

Beauty is relative, but kindness is measurable.

Anger and love are each about caring about an item obsessively.
The variation is in how one cares, not always why.

If the sweat of a lover can taste sweet, then so can a laborious job.
One must marry the task, and smell the pheromones of the lover;
and, not the hideous odors of a stranger.


After we discover how to fall in love with the world,
that which appeared cold and bitter
becomes a delicacy accompanied by a unique savor.

The child believes that pleasure comes from within.
The adult knows that it flows through service to those without.

A personally uplifting thought a day keeps the darkness away.

Love has the power to transmutate.


When one is filled with hatred, that hatred should be used to do something good.

Rest and work need to be tightly balanced; one should not outweigh the other.

All things are natural. But, not all natural things are good.

The same desired solution to a problem is often pursued in radically different ways.

Aside from Jesus Christ, no one is always right.


There is pride and also pride.
One is called 'righteous confidence', and the other 'boorish arrogance'.

Time's inconsistent nature makes it seem like an illusion.

Fear is a deadly virus. From it entire civilizations can be destroyed.

More than one thing can share the same word.
Sometimes these 'things' can be incredibly different; almost opposite at times.


Do not ignore beauty for convenience, nor for laziness or carelessness.

Some of the most desired traits among the members of our species
for other members are kindness and confidence.

Intelligence and wisdom are derived from
paying attention to the right things at the correct times.

The world of lovers needs to be tread upon very carefully,
at least in the beginning.
