Aphorisms by Howard Salzman No. 28

If you pride yourself with how much you know,
Then lift the pride from your mind
And you will find how little you know.

If human beings have anything in common with each other,
It is their flaws, failures and weaknesses.

When you recognize humility in others
You become aware of its absence in yourself.

We fabricate fiction in our mind
Quite certain it is true
Only to watch it destroyed
In the fires of reality.

If your heart is heavy
Then let the smile of a child
Lighten your heart.

If you feel deprived of beauty and joy
Then watch a child at play.

A book has a beginning, a middle and an end.
You are not required to begin at the beginning,
But you may find a page, line or word at random
When meditated on, will have a greater impact on you
Then reading the entire book.

Speak Your Mind
