Don't Shallow Wallow

A  L  O  H  A !
If you want to live in peace, 
you must not tell 
everything that you know, nor 
judge everything that you see.
Respect for the rights 
of others is peace.
               Mexican Proverb

Stop talking and thinking 
and there is nothing 
you will not be 
able to know.
          Sengatan, Hsin Hsin Ming

Hone and spread your spirit, 
till you yourself are a sail, 
whetted, translucent, 
broadside to 
the merest puff.
                     Annie Dillard

That translucent alabaster 
of our memories.
Marcel Proust

In shallow waters, 
shrimps make fools 
of dragons.
                    Chinese Proverb
