The Tao of Peeverism

  • People are not allowed to work to their greatest potential.
  • Our government would be wise to minimize expenses by moderating military and imperial desires.
  • 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.
  • Do not expect yourself to be perfect. After all, you are probably human.
  • When a group of people come together to accomplish something for the common good, their collective power will add up to more than the sum total of the participants. This is called The Tao of the Group Hug.
  • Life's three biggest vices: Doing nothing. Being satisfied with doing nothing. And doing something that amounts to nothing.
  • Justice, compassion, equality, are far more important than profit.
  • People like the good-old-days. They know what to expect because they have already lived them. But try as conservatives 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.
  • We sanction law enforcement and the military to look after us. It is their job to keep the peace and protect us. But it is unwise to think that they are immune to the ills of the world.
  • You cannot seek spiritual wellness outside of yourself. You will not find it in books or in the words of others. The Holy is within you. Seek it from the inside out rather than the outside in.
  • When your behavior does not match your inner wisdom, you have lost your way.
  • In the last analysis, at the end of a day or a lifetime, you must ask yourself this question: Did a do more good than harm?
