in basic terms the necessary advantage abuse.
The larger you move, the reduce you reach.
Atheists and theists are bedfellows, for they either presume to know.

In Aphorisms: short Bursts of fact, writer Donald Patrick Redheffer takes his love of philosophy and poetry and probes the human situation in pursuit of fact anyplace it lies. With over 4 thousand succinct, concise bursts of truth—categorized by means of subject from absolutes, adversity, anticipation, and authority to jogging, climate, why, and wisdom—each aphorism presents a fact that's short and to the purpose, by no means permitting trust or wish to switch the focus.
Explore inside those easy marriages of proposal and language a provocative, occasionally profound, and consistently incomplete mirrored image of truth—for fiction surrounds fact, while aphorisms seize its essence.
My writings come from a place
Enriched via middle and mind,
Where one stares into empty space
For hours at a time,
Pursuing the sublime.
