Auguries of Solitude

Solitude brings out the best of human thoughts and ideas.

Adversity makes a man, wealth monster,
War heroes, lethargy commoners.

To the hungry no bread is bad;
Glad is he, yet inside he’s mad.

Swords may clash and words may hurt,
In silence graver is a grieving heart.

The face, the index of the mind;
Groom, the glitter of a gold mine.

Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for many years, liberated, and led his country, South Africa, to independence from Britrain .

All men are fools, differing in degree,
Even philosophers themselves agree.

Patience is bitter, but sweet is its fruit;
To the old, the prize of Ginseng root.

Children are key to paradise,
Poor man’s riches, or compromise.

Love lives in castles, more in cottages
Where it knows no caprice through the ages.

Weakness of our enemy, our strength,
Yet unaware are we to our last breath.

Time is gold when rightly used,
And there is no other choice. 

Walden is one of the greatest books of all time. American philosopher Henry David Thoreau taught the world dignity in living alone by the Walden Pond, far away from civilization. It is here where he wrote a treatise between nature and man which today found new relevance to man's direct assalt against Nature.
