June 7

Powerless against those that tread on us, we stamp our feet on those below. What trickles down of wealth is not money but grievance.

*

How I dread unpleasantness: I get toothache at the very thought of the bullet I must bite.

*

Views can be fences. Knowing what we think, we may fail to think through what we know.

*

Life, that has no reason for being, cannot get enough of itself, and it is human pride that refuses to call this delight.

*

Unlike writers, a field does not grow anxious while it lies fallow.

*

'So,' says my friend, 'I've been reading your aphorisms.' I do not ask 'And?' and he makes no further comment. No further comment is needed.
