    Islands and continents

    No man is an island;
    some men are continents.

    Build a man a fire and he'll be warm for a day,
    set a man on fire and he'll be warm fro the rest of his life.

    The learned man should make his wisdom known, and he attians to her declare her parises. Those trained in her words must show their wisdom, dispensing sound proverbs like life giving waters.

    "Faith is a state of openness or trust. To have faith is like when you trust yourself to the water. You don't grab hold of the water when you swim, because if you do you will become stiff and tight in the water, and sink. You have to relax, and the attitude of faith is the very opposite of clinging, and holding on. In other words, a person who is fanatic in matters of religion, and clings to certain ideas about the nature of God and the universe becomes a person who has no faith at all. Instead they are holding tight. But the attitude of faith is to let go, and become open to truth, whatever it might turn out to be."

    --Alan Watts

    Who's piggish now?

    "Throwing pearls before pigs"
    says more of the thrower than the pigs.

    Verbose mode

    Writing volumes and volumes,
    on and on, years in and years out,
    to defend the indefensible.

    Kindest Regards, Zenda71!

    Yes, I am familiar with that version too, and likely would have gotten around to it (a round tuit) if you hadn't beaten me to the draw. I find the other version a bit more ironic.

    We the unwiling, led by the unqualified, have been doing the unbelievable for so long with so little, we now attempt the impossible with nothing.
