Good Fences Honolulu

A L O H A !
 "We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring 
Will be to arrive where we started 
And know the place for the first time. 
Through the unknown, unremembered gate 

T. S. Eliot

What Fun!

To Explain Or NOT To Explain

A   L   O   H   A !

"Never complain

and never explain." 


“Don't waste your time 

with explanations:

 people only hear

 what they want 

to hear.” 

            Paulo Coelho

“When you complain, 

you explain pain 

for no gain.


and balance yourself 

through the pain, 

be hopeful 

and persist 

to the end.” 

                  Israelmore Ayivor

“Don't bother explaining-

-I've heard all the excuses 

and the trouble is

most of them 

are true.” 

            John Brunner

“Only peons made 

excuses for themselves

 she taught me. 

Never apologize, 

never explain.” 

                  Janet Fitch, 
                                           White Oleander

If this explanation
is in response
to an outright 

- or 
false assumption
about character
or motives -

Then I'd say
"Don't explain." 

Those demanding it
have already made up
their "mind."

It is not your job
to change it.

I believe devoutly
in the Eloquence
of Silence.

Always do right
as you see it

"I never bother
 about that. 
Those who matter 
don't mind, 
and those who 
don't matter." 
                         Bernard Baruch

"Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!"
