14 Proverbs of A Brief Return

Updated: May 10

Good news, readers. It seems that a certain reduction in my meds has made me a less exhausted man. It has been so long, since I've been this energetic. However, in order to prevent such exhaustion from returning, and in order to be productive on the site, I'll publish here a few philosophical proverbs in this post; It'd be instead of a regular article. I hope that, despite my shortcomings, I will still be able to satisfy your need for competent philosophical content. Now, let's begin:

1. Sometimes, a single bird in the sky is better than a hundred fish in the sea.

2. You are only entitled to your rights, and if they are not being entitled, you should fight for them, whether by protest or even by revolution if necessary. Whatever your rights are, may vary in the eyes of the State. You are only entitled to the rights in which a greater power gives you by their chosen obligation.

3. You can't prevent people from laughing at you if they so choose, but at least you can try to not appear laughable.

4. Those who appreciate you the most, are the least who should be discarded. Surround yourself with loving people, and if you don't have much, then seek them. It's much better than constantly facing off unnecessary adversity, even if adversity has its own benefits.

5. If someone attacks you, you have the right to defend yourself. If you attack someone else, they might harm you as an act of defence. Those who are more sensitive than others might even feel attacked by you not being modest.

6. If you are in doubt about something dear to you, then perhaps it isn't as dear to you as you might believe it is. Worthy appreciation is a product of loyalty.

7. Not every place on Earth is worth visiting, especially where there's a risk to your life. Before minding the location, mind your safety. In everywhere you go, everyone you meet, a risk is at potential, sometimes clear, sometimes not.

8. A life worth living is where survival is not the end goal, but the means to certain ends. The end itself can enhance one's drive for survival. Hence the value of finding purpose.

9. Those who are intimidated by your honesty, do not deserve to be appreciated by you. A mask-less face is warmer than a masked one. Honesty will be appreciated by those who love you the most, and thus allow you to be yourself, instead of a pawn for their goals (like a narcissist's agent).

10. World Domination isn't necessarily a bad thing to aspire for. It depends on your true intentions, and whether or not they will come into fruition.

11. If you will do what others done to you, you will only extend their influence across the environment, by enabling the very actions you condemn. Surely, in order to reduce it, one must resist it. Why spread the disease, when one could dispense the antidote?

12. Be prepared for the rarest of occurrences and you will be the least disappointed.

13. Escapism is at least better than the severe implications of your regrettable actions. Even the strongest and most courageous of men could be shot in the head by a thin and weak sniper.

14. Every action requires sacrifice. The most basic sacrifice of all is time. Since time is limited, some actions are not worth the effort.

I hope that these proverbs were useful to you in one way or another. If they were useful, consider sharing them, so they would be useful to others as well. Goodbye for now.
