1.

the strong man, doesn’t need society

because his position

follows him, wherever he goes.

2.

the educated man, memorizes knowledge, to show it off

where as

the wise man, absorbs knowledge, into himself.

3.

Conventional wisdom

is seldom understood.

4.

At the root of people

is insecurity

Fear, is just below their surface.

5.

Individuals

are carried by the wind of public opinion

So, why does a philosopher commit social suicide?

to be read in secret, and denied 3 times

to transcend society

to be admired, by the few

to say,

“This is what I’ve chosen to do.”

6.

Who should we listen to?

Who do we listen to?

People who Possess what we want.

7.

The will doesn’t want anything

because it is willing

Nothing, is out of reach.

8.

Power

doesn’t need to try

Power

doesn’t need to assert

Power

waits

for the people

to climb it.
