You can win the lottery, but not an argument.

The scarecrow has been in the field so long he thinks it belongs to him.

Lessons are learned, not taught.

Mannequins can't dress themselves. Stones go wherever you throw them.

Should I refuse the honey because the bee stings?

What is fog on the surface is also fog deep inside.

The things I'm not learning are teaching me a lot.

Never do anything important if you can help it.

It's easy to see the dark side. All you have to do is close your eyes.

Order is what exists before you start arranging things.

One person is a person; two is a statistic.

Dreams change the world, but only in dreams.

Be grateful to those who refuse your demands. They are your benefactors.

The landscape looks different from every blade of grass.

Life is simple. You just have to stop trying to figure it out.

  2. This is the first time I have read your aphorisms. I particularly like "Should I refuse the honey because the bee stings." So true, so true-oh wise one.

    Amen!!!!!!

  4. I think you need to partner with a candymaker and include one of your aphorisms with each wrapped sweet. :)

  5. I really look forward to these each month. Nice.

  6. Love the aphorisms about order and dreams. Well done!

  7. Very nice, as always! I especially like the one about the landscape looking different from every blade of grass. So true on so many levels.

  8. Excellent, NP, as usual. This time, my favorites are the following:

    The things I'm not learning are teaching me a lot.

    This is so true--the most important lessons I have learned in life did not come from undergraduate or graduate school; they have come from life itself. And were completely unintended!

    One person is a person; two is a statistic.

    I think it is important for each one of us to remember that every person is a human being like us--they bleed like us, they feel like us, they hurt like us.

    Life is simple. You just have to stop trying to figure it out.

    Ha! I'm still working on this one (every day!).

    Take care, my dear friend--

  11. When I read each one, it makes me reflect on how much each one compares to myself.

  12. Great aphorisms Marty. It's interesting how almost everyone can find a way to apply at least one of these to something in his/her own life.

    I love this month's last one. Life really is simple if you stop trying to figure it out.
    :D

  13. Another great post! These things just make so much sense.

    I liked the "Landscape looks different from every blade of grass" and the "Things I am not learning are teaching me a lot". Don't get me wrong they are all good but for some reason those two stuck out at me.

    Great job! I look forward to more of these. As well, I like the suggestion of putting these on candy wrappers... clever!

    Keep up the good work

  14. Hi Nothing profound. All of these are great, as usual. A few of my faves...

    "You can win the lottery, but not an argument."
    ...at least your chances are better.

    "Never do anything important if you can help it."
    ...no problem.

    Order is what exists before you start arranging things.
    ...haaaaaaa, good one!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I love this one: The scarecrow has been in the field so long he thinks it belongs to him.
    I always leave your page my my spirits filled to the brim. Thank you so much.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Solid. Well-phrased, crisp, clean, both poetic and poignant. Communicates well and also refreshes the mind. Keep up the good work.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Your aphorism has always a touch of learning of the supposed to be obvious but unfortunately no one takes a good examination of life hehhe

    ReplyDelete
  18. "Order is what exists before you start arranging things!!"

    How true! And boy am I guilty of that. Note to self: Must give up control.....control......control.....

    I'll be back to ponder some more. Thanks!!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Marty - very excellent! - every blade of grass. . . exactly my view on the world. Thanks for all these neat things you write. I have a ball reading them and visiting over and over again.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Many thoughts to ponder as I lue on my belly in the tall grass. Thanks for sharing them.

    ReplyDelete
  21. These remarks are so pointed. I truly respect the notion of stop trying to figure out life. We must simply live it to the fullest. Thank you so much for these profound and prolific insights.

  22. You can win the lottery, but not an argument.
    - This is for the people who are close mind and you talk to them and they dont understand

    The scarecrow has been in the field so long he thinks it belongs to him.
    - Too much of something and it can be a habit, part of your life

    Lessons are learned, not taught.

    - Thats fitted with me before, you learn with experience, not with advices, but right now Iam changing.

    Mannequins can't dress themselves. Stones go wherever you throw them.

    - That say to me, difficult things can change. Be are human beings, be can dress ourselves.

    Should I refuse the honey because the bee stings?
    -of course not, be want the honey, we battle the “sting”

    What is fog on the surface is also fog deep inside.
    - I dont think so, appearances can deceive, all the time thats happens.

    The things I'm not learning are teaching me a lot.
    - True. Very good. You fall in a hollow and you learn with the time, human being are not too smart a lot of time.

    Never do anything important if you can help it.
    - Thats difficult to understand. Important things dont need help. That have relation with humility.

    It's easy to see the dark side. All you have to do is close your eyes.
    - That sound to me like a joke.

    Order is what exists before you start arranging things.
    - True.

    One person is a person; two is a statistic.
    - a lot to handle.

    Dreams change the world, but only in dreams.
    - A person life can change, the world is the same.

    Be grateful to those who refuse your demands. They are your benefactors.
    - I dont think so. A close door is a close door even that can be understood in other way.

    The landscape looks different from every blade of grass.
    -True. All is in your “eyes”

    Life is simple. You just have to stop trying to figure it out.
    - True. I like that one.

  23. Marty, I am pleased to know you have published more pearls of wisdom on your unique blog. I am really impressed by all.
    But still would like to mention my favourites of this time.

    1. "Should I refuse the honey because the bee stings?"
    *****
    Marty, sorry, if I got it wrong for me "the honey" means happiness, pleasures success, flowers, friends, etc. While I think "the sting" are the opposites included in the package of human life. And they are sorrows, worries, failures, thorns and enemies etc.
    We need to handle the sting carefully to get the honey, yes we can't really refuse it for the sting. Hope and patience is certainly required.

    2. "The things I'm not learning are teaching me a lot."
    *****
    So true for my life as well.

    3. "Order is what exists before you start arraging things."
    *****
    Nature is already arranged in the best order.

    4. "It's easy to see the dark side. All you have to do is close your eyes."
    *****
    Justice is a must requirement for truth seekers.

  24. NP! You did it again! I love them! "Life is simple. You just have to stop figuring it out".
    A lot of things in life are simple, but humans tend to rationalize everything and add systems/rules to everything and making it difficult. Just live your life, follow your hart, think a little and just be happy and all will be fine.

    Your aphorisms prove that you can say the most important things in one sentence. I can't wait for the next post!! Thanks NP!

    ReplyDelete
  25. My... You're in fine form tonight, amigo. La Rochefoucauld wouldn't have blushed at some of these...

    I'd demand more of your honey if I could, but, frankly I'm afriad of those damn bees. Best I keep away from their literal and/or figurative sting.
    :)

    Best,

    Mal

    ReplyDelete
  26. Beautiful. All of them.

    One aphorism in particular that I need to live by is 'Life is simple. You just have to stop trying to figure it out.'

    Some of us have a habit of making life complicated for ourselves. So much so that we become blind to things that are so glaringly simple.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Very true, in all aspects. Really would make most people think, I know it did for me. This is one to show my Fiance tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  28. This is a REALLY great batch. Several really made my head turn. I like the one about stones go wherever you throw them. I think that is a powerful analogy to words. Words or stones are just THAT, words and stones. But it's where and how we "throw" them that matters.

    ReplyDelete
  29. PS Love the Order is what exists before you start arranging things. I relate to this having lived years in the wild. We think our parks and cities and neat towns are order but it you want to see really order walk into undisturbed nature. Order already exists. It is what IS! LOL!! :)) Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  30. Fantastic Aphorisms!

    Personally, my translation of this particular batch points to all of us, main precepts are:

    1. live a simple life - simplicity equates to wisdom
    2. accumalting knowledge is not the way to wisdom. Instead, liberate yourself from everything you know
    3. self-knowledge is the only thing you need to learn in life

    All I can say, NP, is that your a fine practitioner of the "art of teaching, without teaching." If you get my drift.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Plenty of wisdom to be found in this and the previous post. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  32. You make an excellent point - life really is simple, let's stop making it so difficult! Excellent post!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Excellent group here! I love when just a few words placed together incite thought...well done!

    ReplyDelete
  34. "Life is simple. You just have to stop trying to figure it out." thanks for the reminder :D

    ReplyDelete
  35. Again, as always, your simplicity in capturing the profound understanding of the real world is plainly breath-taking.

    Thank you for detangling complicated thoughts in my head. Keep writing :)

  39. I really agree with a lot of these. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yea, NP. I enjoy. Gives a non-alcoholic nip to the brain. Being the iconoclast that I am, I often jump to twists and turns. Here's 2, first the quote - then my take:

    You can win the lottery, but not an argument.

    My twist:

    You can argue the lottery, but not the win.

    and:

    Should I refuse the honey because the bee stings?

    becomes (for the environmentalist):

    Should I refuse the bee because the honey stinks?

    (smile) Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Excellent! You are so original! I like your reflections!

  43. Great collection of aphorisms here. They all make sense that I actually found myself smiling after reading each one.

  46. Marty, I am strangely moved by these ones in particular...

    "The things I'm not learning are teaching me a lot."

    "The landscape looks different from every blade of grass."

    The wait may be long and agonising, but it is most certainly worth it for some new insights from you, my friend.

    ReplyDelete
  47. No. You should buy the honey in the store in a jar. That way, there are no stinging bees. :)

  54. Very nice aphorisms. This time I can't really choose which one I like most, I'll have to come back again and reflect on them some more, it's such a deligth.

    So much truth written in those aphorisms

    Loved your post, thank you!

  58. How I missed your aphorisms! This group is as great as the previous ones and I have to admit I read them again and again and always find myself smiling and realizing something. Truth extraction :)

  60. Hi Marty,

    I am always blessed when I come here:) I don't know how many times that this aphormism has rung true- "Dreams change the world, but only in dreams." I have had many dreams that seemed so world shaking, but only to wake up realizing that it was just a dream...

    Great work
    Hope all is well

    hope everything is well

    ReplyDelete
  63. Your most insightful and zen-like: "Order is what exists before...etc..." This is wisdom. We cannot bring order where it exists in nature or in our own affairs. As soon as we start, we arrange the life out of things and they will sooner or later return to a balance after exacting a toll from us. But can we refuse to "arrange" things? Our determanistic nature will not allow most of to refrain. Great new collection, Marty. My best.Count Sneaky

  68. Oh, fantastic! Every quote really tells a lot, with just a few words. Perhaps, the one that impressed me the most, this time, was this: "Lessons are leaned, not taught". Ahhhh, it hurts a little, hahahaha. But it's the truth. Congratulations Marty. Blessings.

  88. Aaah simple words but so meaningful. It's something we know of already but when beautifully composed, we stop to think. :)

    I am at this stage of life when I am making my life a lot more complicated than it really is and to come across your line, "Life is simple. You just have to stop trying to figure it out." , I just had to smile. Of course life is simple but once in awhile we need reminding.:)

  94. Marty, more scrumptious food for thought. How about doing an illustrated book? Have you begun collating the aphorisms into themes or subjects?

    ReplyDelete
  95. These are all very thought provoking!

    ReplyDelete
  96. I really like the way you think. I was impressed by the thing with the scarecrow.You seem to look at things from a very deem perspective. Many don't attempt to do so because surface and shallowness protects them against a painful self-analysis that is likely to bring to surface the dark side of every person.

  99. NP -- There's so much wisdom in these brief sentences. How do you do that? I enjoyed reading them all, but my favorites were:

    Lessons are learned, not taught.

    Order is what exists before you start arranging things.

    The landscape looks different from every blade of grass.

    Life is simple. You just have to stop trying to figure it out.

  123. Hi NP, read your posts. kudos for they're really nice ones. There are some points though of which i would differ. I'd say applications really depends on the outlook and situation of an individual. I also keep a small collection similar to these, only proverbs.

  130. Your words and thoughts are deep. Profound as usual. Especially, 'The landscape looks different from every blade of grass'. Meaning we're all one-of-a-kind, we see things from our own unique perspective. Errol.

  134. One of my favorites- "Dreams can change the world, but only in dreams". Can I give a rejoinder, if you don't mind, please? "Words can change dreams, but only in words".

  135. Very deep and thought-provoking quotes you have in here! I love the part the things I'm not learning are teaching me a lot. This happens a lot of times especially on the mistakes we keep on doing.

  136. Why do people comment and dribble over your thoughts and and aphorisms? Why do they agree with everything you say, quote and praise you?

    Perhaps it is only because we have stuck out heads so much into the ground that we have forgotten to look up in the skies, and we only accept everything that you give us, and never question them.
