Chinese Symbol for profoundity (via Google Images)
I’ve been away for a while and have been really tardy about responding to your lovely comments. But I’m back and will get there soon. I promise.
Today I’m so happy to have Nothing Profound sharing stuff which is just the opposite – very profound! I love reading his aphorisms. Well, if you’re anything like me, you’ll go: ‘What’s that?”  Here’s what it means:
aph-or-ism : a terse saying embodying a general truth, or astute observation

I asked Nothing Profound to share ten aphorisms of his here and he did – and threw in a eleventh one for good measure! You know how much I appreciate that, my friend. If you like what you read, please go visit his blog.
May you be inspired – everyday!

There is music you never hear unless you play it yourself.

The mouse that fears the trap has already been trapped.

Don’t stand in the hallway waiting; join the feast.




I used to see the flaw in every diamond.  Now stones astound me with their perfection.

When I told the rainbow what its colors meant, it laughed.

No river could flow if it had to know its destination first.

Forgive me my foolish beliefs, as I forgive your foolish beliefs.

One is never wounded by the love one gives, only by the love one expects.

How is failure possible?  One is always just beginning to live.


The leaves on the water, the fog under the bridge.  That’s what I believe in.
