Aphorisms on a Remembered Day   Leave a comment

Intellectual Shaman


Be careful

when baring your soul to the world

because it might be ugly—

your soul,

and the world.


A man who wrestles with himself

knows he is weak

and strong. He wins and loses.

He overcomes himself and submits to himself.

A man who wrestles with God

always loses. He submits,

or he is destroyed.


A wasted day is one

we don’t care to remember.

The days we do remember

are often tragic.

People can’t remember what they had for breakfast.

Could it be, people waste their lives

for fear of failure?

A life without tragedy,

is a wasted life.


A little failure

makes a sweet life bitter,

until the flower doesn’t want to bloom

for fear of being disappointed, again.

The fullness of failure

is a delicious drink

that steps into pain

and never considers comfort, again.


A life of limited experience
