DECEMBER 4. Four things of which little is much: Fire, enmity, poverty, and illness.

Unsullied poverty is always happy, while impure wealth brings with it many sorrows. CONFUCIUS.

Do not judge all you see.

Do not believe all you hear.

Do not do all you can.

Do not say all you know.

Do not eat all you have.

Let no one know what you have in your heart or in your wallet.

 

Döm ej allt du ser.

Tro ej allt du hör.

Gör ej allt du kan.

Säg ej allt du vet.

Förtär ej allt du har.

Låt ingen veta vad du har i hjärtat eller pungen.

SWEDISH PROVERB.

SEPTEMBER 30 2011: Better a little furniture than an empty house. Danish Proverb

p9270015

Extract from The Table of Longing

The table of longing was the sound of

all furniture ever moved. A distant sea

in the ear of a grand piano.

It was a tree uprooted
and black soil stirred. A car moaning
at the foot of a hill.
