Good humor is the sun on cloudy days.

Between thoughts, travel far and wide.

Nobody wants to be nothing. But that's the greatest thing in the world to be.

Teach children what they would learn, not what you would teach them.

My calm is like the tides: never at rest.

The little girl riding her bicycle. Never once did she wonder: "Is this worthwhile?"

You either love what's broken or you don't love.

Maturity is the moment one regains one's innocence.

Dreams that scare us wake us up.

Getting lost is part of getting there.

I never reach those far-off places. New trails tempt me at every turn.

The deep roots never doubt spring will come.

To stand speechless before a mountain is all I ask now.

  1. Marty, you never fail to impress me. Lovely aphorisms, as usual. Lot's for me to ponder here. Another treasure trove of thoughts.
    Thank you.

  2. Marty--I think this very well might be my favorite list of your aphorisms. SO many of these really spoke to me.

    Good humor is the sun on cloudy days.
    (how wonderful it is to see that spot of sunshine peeking through the clouds. This is also true in the figurative sense. When I am feeling down, I try to think of one sunny thought to cheer me up. It almost always works.

    You either love what's broken or you don't love.
    (we're all broken--in some way or another--and we all need love).

    Getting lost is part of getting there.
    (the journey really is the destination, isn't it?)

    And finally:

    To stand speechless before a mountain is all I ask now.
    (you take me home to Montana with that thought).

    Thanks as always, for doing these--they always brighten me up and make me think about things in a different way.

  4. I have experienced the truth of each one of these and just now, the truth that is beating strongest in my heart is this one:

    "Nobody wants to be nothing. But that's the greatest thing in the world to be."

    And in the spirit of that truth, I shall say 'no thing' further :)

  5. "The little girl riding her bicycle. Never once did she wonder, "Is this worthwhile?"

    I love this! Truly says it all, especially because I can picture my, almost six year old daughter being exhilarated flying down a hill on her bike.

    Children hold the key. In some ways they are the most "advanced" of all beings because they know how to just be in the moment.

    "I never reach those far off places. New trails tempt me at every turn."

    Having goals is important, but keeping the possibility open for change is critical to actually reaching the goal. I agree, new trails lead to new opportunities. Well said!

    "Teach children what they would learn. Not what you would teach them."

    I need to learn this. I constantly try and ram my "agenda" down their throats as if I know what's good for them. All parents have a tendency to do this in the guise of being supportive parents. A good reminder.

    Once again, I'm inspired!

  6. NP! How are you?! You are definitely one of the people that inspire me to think about the simple things in life. I love, love, love these batch of aphorisms!

    Thank you!!!

  7. "Maturity is the moment one regains one's innocence."

    Or at least finds that kid inside and sets it free :)

    Love this set of them, this lot is my favourite so far, well until your write the next bunch.

  8. Brother, I am glad to finally see a new post thanks so much for sharing more.
    The following quotes really touched my heart:

    "The little girl riding her bicycle. Never once did she wonder, "Is this worthwhile?" "

    "Dreams that scare us wake us up"

    "The deep roots never doubt the spring will come"

    this last one is the best in my favourites.
    I hope I will remember it for long, inshaAllah.

    Thanks once more!
    Best Wishes

  9. "My calm is like the tides: never at rest."

    I watch the waves crash onto shore, and they bring me peace like little else does. But now I will consider their never being at rest. And I will have to ask myself if, even at my most stress-free, am I truly at peace?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hello sweet Marty! It's just great to see you again!!!

    I've just elected "Dreams that scare us wake us up" my favorite aphorism for the day and I may even right a blogpost about it this week. You're simply inspiring.

    I love it when you share your drops of wisdom, and of course I'm not the only one.

    Take care my dear and keep smiling. Warm kisses from Brazil. =*

  12. "Teach children what they would learn, not what you would teach them."

    As a teacher, I can't not love this. This approach is integral to sharing authentic meaning-making versus dumping information into kids as though they are waste receptacles.

    Though I've singled this one out, I thoroughly enjoyed the list as a whole. Thank you for sharing what is indeed profound!

  13. "Nobody wants to be nothing. But that's the greatest thing in the world to be."

    Why do we all want to be famous? Perhaps it's an extension of the (understandable) desire to be accepted by our peers/society. Better to be unknown ie "nothing".

    Of course rona's interpretation is nice as well. But then a good aphorism can signify different things to different people.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Rats! I wanted to add that this desire for fame, rooted in our desire for social acceptability, is a hindrance, a weakness.

    Silly old toad, pressing the wrong button thingies again.

  15. You either love what you know to be imperfect, or your love is imperfect?

  16. Awesome batch yet again NP and this catch my attention. “Teach children what they would learn, not what you would teach them”. And this is when they appreciate you ...

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wow. This is so special. I agree getting lost is part of getting there. Reminds me to cherish the process and be in the moment with honesty and awareness.

    ReplyDelete
  18. You've done it again, and tonight is a night of thoughts and dreams which I so looked forward to pondering and your quotes give me insight to my feelings especially "the calm is like the tides...and don't we know, there never is rest" I say for the weary..

  19. Great stuff! These are my favourites:

    The little girl riding her bicycle. Never once did she wonder: "Is this worthwhile?" – More being and less doing would do us all good.

    Maturity is the moment one regains one's innocence – Paradoxically, that's how you remain young.

    The deep roots never doubt spring will come – That's supreme confidence for you.

    ReplyDelete
  20. wise and nice written.
    some of them are very Zen-like
    maybe I'm too obsessed with the word "Zen" though :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm left speechless...well not quite.
    A Internet friend of mine sent me a photograph of her dayplanner/calendar/address book thingie, with the cover of Casey Driessen's CD "Oog" which I am listening to right now. the calendar cover says, "free your heart from hatred - free your mind from worry - live simply - give more - expect less - choose to be happy". and it says, "once in awhile: create or find a deep silence and listen". and it says, "bravo viva kudos whoopee eureka hallelujah abracadabra". and, "do not under any circumstances, revile the people you disagree with. keep in mind Booker T. Washington's view: 'I shall allow no man to belittle my soul by making me hate him.'"

    the CD cover doesn't say much, but when you put the CD in a computer in makes amazing sounds come out. particularly amazing fiddle sounds. like I've never heard a fiddle sound before.

    I think that the years of looking at and thinking about and trying to live the words on the cover of the calendar, have helped me have a deeper and broader appreciation of music and other things.

    I would highly recommend a Zen Google Search.

  23. I love them as usual!
    NP, you truly are a deep soul! thank you for sharing your meditations.
    My favorites today are these two, but I know that tomorrow I might prefer another one, because each of them echoes in me differently depending on so many factors:

    The little girl riding her bicycle. Never once did she wonder: "Is this worthwhile?"

  25. ------------------------------------
    Nobody wants to be nothing. But that's the greatest thing in the world to be.
    ------------------------------------

    Forgive me, Marty, if I'm unable to run on retard mode today. I'm sure you know it's the very thing that allows me to convert your awesome aphorisms into my uber psycho version of profound nothingness. But, somehow, I just want to be nothing today. You see, one of your aphorisms truly resonated with me which is the reason I highlighted it. All these years I have wanted to be something. However, I discovered that that something is really nothing. Thinking about that something, which is nothing, made me feel for a long time that I was nothing until I realized that all I had to do was stop thinking of something and start thinking of nothing. (Well, I guess that's the same as not thinking at all, but I need to be clear, of course.) Then, I arrived at the point of thinking about nothing and that was really liberating. So, ever since that day, whenever I think of something, I think of nothing and that, for me, is the greatest thing in the world.

    P.S. This is nothing profound. I just wanted to say something, that's all.

    ...'Nobody wants to be nothing.

    Thanks for sharing.

  27. Nobody wants to be nothing
    there is no satisfaction in beige
    it is the discord that stands at the street corner
    screaming look at me while flashing
    cardboard cut outs labelled “fame”.

    Bleach those humble human tones
    Until the white, white airbrushed painted fades.

  28. My favourite - Getting lost is part of getting there - so simple, so compelling -

  29. Oh my dear sweet friend!! These are STUPENDOUS!! I am moved to tears by several of them. The little girl on her bike. And loving what's broken. And the one about "nothing". And the one about dreams that wake us up. And the one about innocence. These are all things dear to my heart. My word you are so very brilliant. Shinning in such clean simplicity, peace and warmth. I think this batch really hit very deeply with me. You expressions always do, but these have a deep sense of "sweetness" to them that pierces my heart and leaves tears of beauty in my eyes. I really like that. Hugs, Robin.

  31. Wonderful thoughts and aphorisms! They carry so much truth, and I'm glad you shared them with us.

    I agree that we should just be happy to be who we are, and to be doing what we're doing. On a certain level, it's all meant to "be this way."

    Thank you for your PROFOUND verbalizations! You've added meaning to my day...

  45. Wow, It is so true that maturity is the moment one regains one's innocence.
    Yes, we have lost our innocence. Realizing this and we will be able to get that innocence again.
    We all have that inborn innocence.
    From our own experiences, we will be able to have that maturity to go back to the point of origin-innocence.
    Thank you very much for the enlightenment.

  49. That's the best I ever had heard:

  51. Hi Marty, You take your time between posts and do it right! Good collection. My favorite: "Nobody wants to be nothing,etc...." There are few things in life better than being nothing. You don't have to spend a lot of money to maintain a fiction...you don't have to meet other's expectation, and on and on. There are so many advantages! I enjoy being nothing. It is a a lot easier than trying to be something. My best

  68. I found that this particular batch permeated with the wisdom of humilty, especially in this one:

    "Nobody wants to be nothing. But that's the greatest thing in the world to be."

    This is comparable to Lao Tzu's humbling passage in the Tao Te Ching:

    "Highest good is like water. Because water excels in benefiting the myriad creatures without contending with them and settles where none would like to be, it comes close to the way."

    Thanks again, NP!

  81. The little girl riding her bicycle. Never once did she wonder: "Is this worthwhile?" So very true. When we do things, very often we will question if it is worth doing the things.

  82. Hi Marty, It seems that "Nobody wants to be nothing..."is the biggest hit in this post. Deservedly so. But, I'm not sure it means the same to every one.
    To me it means making no waves in the sea of life. Living quietly and having the time and opportunity to learn to simply be aware. Every night, of course, we become nothing when deep sleep overtakes us. This is a temporary release of the body by the mind. The body as we know cannot go very long without sleep, so consciouness itself is too fragile to survive long without an infusion of nothing. Perhaps, this is making a big to do about nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Hi Marty, sorry it took so long to get over to read your great aphorism's. I haven't been on my computer to much. You never cease to amaze me with your unending aphorism's.

    I love them all, but the one that stood out in a humorous kind of way is "getting lost is part of getting there."

    This brought me back to when I was in my late teens. an old friend and I used to go out for long rides when we got bored. We would purposely find a road we never had been on before and drive until we got lost. The fun part was trying to find our way back... Thanks for the memory! It was fun reminiscing!!!

  97. Hi Marty,
    I especially like this aphorism: "Nobody wants to be nothing. But that's the greatest thing in the world to be." Would you please elaborate on that? The words ring completely true to me, but I'd be hard pressed to say exactly why. Today I was able to attend a talk given by Eckhart Tolle, and being in his presence I was struck by his unfeigned humility. He seemed to embody being the nothing that is the greatest thing in the world to be.

    The striving to be something (rather than nothing) wreaks a lot of havoc in the world. So I am hoping you may elaborate on your aphorism and pull the rug out from under the impulse toward useless striving that sometimes overtakes me.
    Thank you for this blog.
