Saturday, 9th:
…there can be no public or private virtue unless the foundation of action is the practice of truth.
George Jacob Holyoake

Saturday, 17th:
He who laughs last hasn't been told the terrible truth.

Saturday, 23rd:
Merry Christmas to All, even y'all lame, ineffective hackers!
Following -
When the great man learns the Way, he follows it with diligence;

When the common man learns the Way, he follows it on occasion;
When the mean man learns the Way, he laughs out loud;
Those who do not laugh, do not learn at all.
Therefore it is said:
Who understands the Way seems foolish;
Who progresses on the Way seems to fail;
Who follows the Way seems to wander.
For the finest harmony appears plain;
The brightest truth appears colored;
The richest character appears incomplete;
The bravest heart appears meek;
The simplest nature appears inconstant.
The square, perfected, has no corner;
Music, perfected, has no melody;
Love, perfected, has no climax;
Art, perfected, has no meaning.
The Way can be neither sensed nor known:
It transmits sensation and transcends knowledge.
Lao Tse, "Tao Te Ching"

Saturday, 30th:
Happy New Year! May 2018 be happy, fun, and profitable for you and yours!
Quiet -
Great perfection seems incomplete,
But does not decay;
Great abundance seems empty,
But does not fail.
Great truth seems contradictory;
Great cleverness seems stupid;
Great eloquence seems awkward.
As spring overcomes the cold,
And autumn overcomes the heat,
So calm and quiet overcome the world.
Lao Tse, "Tao Te Ching"
