The Tao of Peeverism

  • If you think you can escape the chaos of the world, forget it. The world was born out of chaos and will end out of chaos. In-between, you had better pay attention.
  • People are not willing, or allowed, to work to their greatest potential.
  • Governments wold be wise to minimize expenses by moderating desire and ambition.
  • Anyone who wants to be a leader must be able to chose winners as followers. Those who will be able to utilize everyone's power and determination toward a common goal will be successful.
  • It is far better to Peever someone off than it is to ignore them. When people are complacent, society suffers. When they are upset, they work to make things better.
  • Never underestimate your personal power. But first, you have to find it.
  • Lavish buildings and frenzied profit making are not the signs of a wise society. Feeding the hungry and housing the homeless are.
  • Capitalism uses cunning and deceit to dress up profiteering and imperialism.
  • What is going to war over a lie all about? What is continuing that war, even when the lie has been exposed, all about? It cannot be about democracy and freedom. Those ideals are not born out of lies and deceit.
  • Do not expect yourself to be perfect. After all, you are probably human.
  • Life's three biggest vices: Doing nothing. Being satisfied with doing nothing. And doing something that amounts to nothing.
  • Justice is far more important than profit. Immature people crave profit and ignore justice.
  • People like the good-old-days. They know what to expect because they have already lived them. But try as we may, the good-old-days will not return. That is not the way of the world. These people end up not knowing what is what.
  • You cannot seek spiritual wellness outside of yourself. You will not find it in books or in the words of others. No one needs to tell you of it. IN looking for the Holy, look in a mirror.
  • When your outside behavior does not match your inner wisdom, you have lost your way.
