Valentines Can Do The 
math
Valentines can do the math:More than one is none.Intimacy is intimate,Else one must be alone. One can be a ValentineOnly if one willTake one for oneself, and thenLet the heart be still. Valentines are all in one:Parent, child, friend,Pet and plaything, counselor,Nurse, guide, journey's end. Valentines are never perfect,Though they patient prove.What one can expect of themDepends upon one's... Poems - Post by : mcowen - Date : May 2012 - Author : Unknown - Read : 796

People Who Are Certain Are A 
curtain
People who are certain are a curtainDraped between the object and the word.One sees only formulas repeatedTirelessly, like stones thrown at the wind. Such faith is evidence of little faith,For faith knows very well it cannot know.Doubt becomes a glass through which one seesA star or...

Now, At Last, The Time Of 
reckoning Now, At Last, The Time Of reckoning

Now, At Last, The Time Of 
reckoning
Now, at last, the time of reckoning.It had to come. You knew that, didn't you?After all, nothing can't be somethingEven when its stock is on the rise.Now the panic after the delusion,The great big yawning pit within the heart.One sees disaster happening and wonders,Regrets, resolves, recriminates, sits tight.O Lord, what will happen now? The hunger,People on the streets and on the move.The last depression blossomed... Poems - Post by : mugaan - Date : May 2012 - Author : Unknown - Read : 2293

On Wisdom: Modern World: 
change On Wisdom: Modern World: change

On Wisdom: Modern World: 
change
1. Wisdom is universal, rooted in human nature, which has evolved over millennia. But it is not eternal because human nature, although slow to change, is not eternal. 2. We ought, then, to consider wisdom as we do mountains or the sea--changing, but on a scale so vast and slow that to us it seems eternal. 3. Still, wisdom...

On Wisdom: Modern World: 
technology On Wisdom: Modern World: technology

On Wisdom: Modern World: 
technology
1. Technology, like evolution, is progressive, one change building upon another in an ascent towards greater complexity and specialization. 2. Thus technological change often seems inevitable: "What can be done, will be done," regardless of ultimate desirability. 3. Yet such change is always and entirely a matter of political and social will, so that although the means may exist,... Poems - Post by : AllanMac - Date : May 2012 - Author : Unknown - Read : 2695

On Wisdom: Modern World: 
globalization On Wisdom: Modern World: globalization

On Wisdom: Modern World: 
globalization
1. In the inexorable movement towards one world, much will be gained and much lost. For example, on the positive side is the end of war; on the negative, the slow disintegration of difference. 2. Once people are free to live and work anywhere in the world, traditions, languages, and cultures will slowly disappear over generations of intermarriage and dispersal. Those who love...

On Wisdom: Practice: 
habit On Wisdom: Practice: habit

On Wisdom: Practice: 
habit
1. Virtue cannot be pursued except through habit, since in most situations the need for decision is too immediate for thought. So, for example, one is likely to forget to say something courteous if courtesy is not habitual, or may tell a lie to avoid some slight humiliation if one has not made a habit of being honest. 2. If one attempts to make a... Poems - Post by : Chris_Creighton - Date : May 2012 - Author : Unknown - Read : 3608

rule On Wisdom: Practice: The Golden rule

On Wisdom: Practice: The Golden 
rule
1. The Golden Rule can be stated either positively or negatively: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," or "Do not do to another what you would not want done to you." It is another form of the commandment, "Love thy neighbor as thyself." 2. The basis for the rule is our need for harmony and symmetry, which leads us to...

On Wisdom: Practice: The Golden 
mean On Wisdom: Practice: The Golden mean

On Wisdom: Practice: The Golden 
mean
1. Aristotle proposed a simple rule for acting wisely: moderation in all things except knowledge. He excepted knowledge because it was the one quality for which he could find no excess. But for every other quality, he said, there is a deficit and an excess, and wisdom lies in finding the mean between them. 2. So, for example, courage would be the mean...

On Wisdom: Principles: 
death On Wisdom: Principles: death

On Wisdom: Principles: 
death
1. Experience without death is as unimaginable as experience without time. 2. Death is the sunlight that makes all things visible, the end that measures time, the music that moves us to compassion, the nothingness that brings us peace. 3. Life and death are one gift, as are joy and sorrow. One cannot esteem one without esteeming the other, just as one... Poems - Post by : madblitzer - Date : May 2012 - Author : Unknown - Read : 3464

On Wisdom: Principles: 
ecstasy On Wisdom: Principles: ecstasy

On Wisdom: Principles: 
ecstasy
1. Ecstasy is the lightning that flashes whenever we get sufficiently close to being. 2. Like lightning, ecstasy is a flow of energy that cannot be long sustained, is dangerous, and is often accompanied by storms. 3. Again like lightning, however, ecstasy can be harnessed to create a more reliable, albeit feebler flow. The social instruments that harness ecstasy...

On Wisdom: Principles: 
love On Wisdom: Principles: love

On Wisdom: Principles: 
love
1. Love is the longing of all life for being. 2. Love for others is the longing for the being of others, an emotion without which neither we nor the human species would survive. 3. Love for others motivates altruistic behavior; that is, behavior not in the interest of one's own personal survival. Thus paradoxically one's longing for being...

On Wisdom: Principles: 
harmony On Wisdom: Principles: harmony

On Wisdom: Principles: 
harmony
1. All delight in harmony, symmetry, and just proportion. 2. Dissonance and asymmetry cry out for resolution, depicting even more powerfully what is not there. 3. Harmony among objects is called beauty. Harmony among or within people is called goodness. 4. Sincerity results in harmony between what one says and what one knows....

On Wisdom: Principles: 
freedom On Wisdom: Principles: freedom

On Wisdom: Principles: 
freedom
1. Freedom is a physical impossibility and a metaphysical necessity. 2. While all events must have causes, being itself cannot have a cause since nothing can exist outside of, or prior to, being. At the root of all existence, then, is absolute freedom, which is why, at every moment of our existence, we experience our own being as beyond cause and effect....

On Wisdom: Attributes: Goal Of 
happiness On Wisdom: Attributes: Goal Of happiness

On Wisdom: Attributes: Goal Of 
happiness
1. Happiness is by definition the state to which all aspire. For most, that state is one of deep and lasting pleasure. 2. Such pleasure is not to be confused with transitory pleasure, which comes and goes, while happiness, to be truly happiness, must be a state that is far more stable and certain. 3. Nor should such pleasure... Poems - Post by : yisraelharris - Date : May 2012 - Author : Unknown - Read : 1503

On Wisdom: Attributes: Basis In 
human Nature On Wisdom: Attributes: Basis In human Nature

On Wisdom: Attributes: Basis In 
human Nature
1. The principles of wisdom are not only discernible by reason but engraved upon the heart. This is because wisdom is part of human nature, which has evolved over millennia and is in all people the same. 2. One may ask, then, why all are not wise. The answer is that all are wise to varying degrees, just as all are to varying degrees intelligent,... Poems - Post by : pgram35 - Date : May 2012 - Author : Unknown - Read : 3459

On Wisdom: Attributes: 
rationality On Wisdom: Attributes: rationality

On Wisdom: Attributes: 
rationality
1. Religions are the raiments of wisdom. 2. God is a metaphor for being. 3. All wisdom can be comprehended with reference to the material world. 4. This is not to deny the spirituality of wisdom, but rather the separation of the spiritual from the material. 5.... Poems - Post by : vjpsb - Date : May 2012 - Author : Unknown - Read : 2176

On Wisdom: Attributes: 
universality On Wisdom: Attributes: universality

On Wisdom: Attributes: 
universality
1. Wisdom is everywhere the same. 2. It has, however, a large and varied wardrobe. 3. Thus while wisdom may appear to be different at different times and in different places, stripped naked it is familiar to all. 4. Why, then, have various generations and cultures practiced such evils as human sacrifice, genocide,... Poems - Post by : caymen - Date : May 2012 - Author : Unknown - Read : 1954

Seventy-three Seventy-three

Seventy-three
Seventy-three refocuses on loveEven as she now must live alone.Very little waits behind the door;Every day is like the day before;Nestled in her heart are sleeves of stone;Time hangs like fog no sun will soon remove.Yet there is much that makes her yearn for more.To be is to be loved and blessed with grace,However one might live or soon might die.Revelations come like words long known,Each an invitation to embrace,Ecstasy unbearable but shy....
