T. T. T. Put up in a place where it's easy to see the cryptic admonishment T. T. T. When you feel how depressingly slowly you climb, it's well to remember that Things Take Time.
Stumbling around on the internet tonight, hoping for some
serendipity to open up my point of view. I came across a site
of 'Grooks' by Piet Hein These are wonderful, compact little
treasures like the one above.
Here's another few:
A TOAST The soul may be a mere pretence, the mind makes very little sense. So let us value the appeal of that which we can taste and feel.
ROOK TO STIMULATE GRATITUDE in sour rationalists. As things so very often are intelligence won't get you far. So be glad you've got more sense than you've got intelligence.
MANKIND Men, said the Devil, are good to their brothers: they don’t want to mend their own ways, but each other's.
P. Hein wrote over 10,000 of grooks, most in Danish or English, published in more than 60 books. Some say that the name is short for 'GRin & sUK' ("laugh & sigh", in Danish), but Piet said he felt that the word had come out of thin air.
