Aphorisms by Howard Salzman No. 10

Vanity is violence to inner peace.

The analytical mind
Tries to find answers to an event in time
And seeks to reconstruct
All the factors of a given moment.
To say that this and that
Were the causes of a particular event
When in reality a thousand things were at play
Which could never be duplicated today.

He who seeks to destroy another
Will destroy himself,
So do not wait for the day of reckoning
For there is no printed schedule,
It simply happens
Often unseen and unrecorded.

When you judge another
You will reinforce their flaws.
When you listen
You will allow them
To judge themselves.
