Catching Up On Twitter
A selection of my tweets over the past two months. (I guess there will always be one more "Final Archive.")
"To help someone in need is not charity," I would say to a child. "It is proper etiquette."
"You list all the reasons why no one could ever love you, and then one day you meet someone with the same list."
"If there's one thing in life that you and you alone are the final judge of, it's who you let judge you."
"You always think you could have done more. That's why you need a friend -- to tell you you did all you could."
The mind, as you age,
Is an artist, it seems.
Monet paints your mem'ries,
Picasso your dreams.
"It's perhaps unfair to ask forgiveness of love, but that's generally the injured party."
"You can misconstrue Christ's words to find a dozen Christianities, but you will find only one in the example of His life."
"The danger of a severe mental disorder is that it attracts followers."
"It is a lifelong battle to try to love someone through the chinks in their armor."
"As a gardener, I wonder if flowers really can't speak or just exercise unfailing good judgment in the matter."
"I've never figured out whether people are the same in different ways or different in the same ways."
"Shall I be an optimist, or shall I sit by a stream of golden nuggets and pan for sludge?"
"Two raindrops, flung from the heavens, merge on a windowpane. A chance meeting? Tell it to the two raindrops."
"A river never beats its head against obstacles. It always go around, and it always gets to the sea."
"The toughest test of good judgment is to know when to withhold your better judgment."
"Meanwhile, the bold continue to fight a successful holding action against those who shall inherit the earth."
