Aphorisms by Howard Salzman No. 14

Human beings precede nationalities, religion and culture.
When we fail to recognize our own chronology
we become creatures of conflict.

What is known
is merely a fraction of the whole
it is vanity that deceives us into believing
that we know more than we do.

The problem with experts
is they become infatuated
with their expertise
and to question them
is to introduce a third party
into a love affair.

How strange that spiritual materialists
wage war on the truly spiritual
with intellectual and analytical assaults.

How many times do we cry out in anguish
God, have mercy on me
when the more appropriate plea would be
God, show me the way to have mercy
on myself.
