An aphorism is a short expression of a fact or sentiment, and whereas volumes were written on existence and dying, love and loss, discomfort and enjoyment, and correct and incorrect, occasionally it's a basic aphorism that may top seize the reality and exhibit some degree of view, enriching the outdated and bringing whatever of the new.
In Aphorisms: short Bursts of fact, writer Donald Patrick Redheffer takes his love of philosophy and poetry and probes the human situation in pursuit of fact at any place it lies. With over 4 thousand succinct, concise bursts of truth—categorized via subject from absolutes, adversity, anticipation, and authority to jogging, climate, why, and wisdom—each aphorism presents a fact that's short and to the purpose, by no means permitting trust or wish to swap the focus.
Explore inside those uncomplicated marriages of idea and language a provocative, occasionally profound, and continually incomplete mirrored image of truth—for fiction surrounds fact, while aphorisms catch its essence.
My writings come from a place
Enriched through middle and mind,
Where one stares into empty space
For hours at a time,
Pursuing the sublime.
