Aphorisms by Howard Salzman No. 8

There are more answers
in silent observation
than in endless analyzation.

The beauty of the flight of a bird is lost
when we follow it with words.

The intellectual is aware of
how much he knows
the scholar is aware of
how little he knows.

We come together in silence
and separate with words.

The mind is a battleground for unfinished business.

Within each voice is an inner voice
that rings true or false
and all the words
cannot camouflage its integrity.

Pride is the enemy of inner peace,
humility, its friend.

Immanence and transcendence
theological terminology
that can obscure
rather than clarify
the presence of the Divine.
