14 Proverbs of A Brief Return

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 contemplations. Now, let's begin:

1. Sometimes, a 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.

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 evitable enemies.

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.

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. True appreciation takes 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 a certain ends. The end itself can enhance one's drive for survival.

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.

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. 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 actions. Even the strongest man could be shot in the head by a thin 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 don't know why my emotions are so liquid and swift to change. It seems that that's all I can't do for now. I sometimes wish I would be emotionless, so I won't be influenced by them so easily, but it appears that there's nothing I can do. I hope that these proverbs were useful to you in one way or another.

I don't know when I'll write again, but at least I tried. Goodbye for now.
