I do understand that a great number of individuals are often too preoccupied to sit and read books or long essays, and because I enjoy quotations and archiving things, I am using this post to build a collection of aphorisms that I find useful in summarizing much of my writing. Usually, I cannot just voluntarily sit down in deep thought and begin writing nor would I want to. Nearly everything th... Read more of this blog post »

“To say that one waits a lifetime for his soulmate to come around is a paradox. People eventually get sick of waiting, take a chance on someone, and by the art of commitment become soulmates, which takes a lifetime to perfect.”
Criss Jami, Venus in Arms

“Just because something isn't a lie does not mean that it isn't deceptive. A liar knows that he is a liar, but one who speaks mere portions of truth in order to deceive is a craftsman of destruction.”
Criss Jami

“Grudges are for those who insist that they are owed something; forgiveness, however, is for those who are substantial enough to move on.”
Criss Jami, Salomé: In Every Inch In Every Mile

“Question like a child, reason like an adult, and write like a sage.”
Criss Jami, Healology

“Always seek justice, but love only mercy. To love justice and hate mercy is but a doorway to more injustice.”
Criss Jami, Healology

“I never feel unsafe except for when the majority is on my side.”
Criss Jami, Healology

“Who you are in public is a test of your conviction; who you are in private, integrity.”
Criss Jami, Healology

“All knowledge meets an end at the question '...Why?”
Criss Jami, Healology
