A Saturday Pontification

A single conversation across a table with a wise man is worth a month’s study of books.

~Old Chinese Proverb~


A single moment of understanding can flood a whole life with meaning.

~Unknown Author~


A single glimpse into one’s True Nature is to have seen God.

~The Old Silly~


Short, sweet, and deep today, people. Feel free to comment, and blog back in tomorrow for another Dear Old Silly counseling session. Oh – and thanks for all the peeps who tweet these posts. The Flag counter just hit 100 – that’s one hundred different countries, readers from all around the planet, stopping in for their daily dose of Free Spirit. Yay! Who says social networking doesn’t work?

Chow, gang … have a great day in Bloggydom!

    Love your spelling. You have a good point there. I woke up this morning with a question the answer to which I may never know. What is a ray? For example: examine closely a UV ray. Put a microscope on one inch of this ray. What is it made of? It has to be a physical entity, but of what? It is a wave, yet it has to be partical also to transmit. What particle is it? Is it made up of atoms or only parts of atoms, quarks for example?

    Short and sweet but very wise words.

    Love these, especially the unknown author one. I have experienced this and it is, indeed, true. Happy weekend!

    Wise sayings indeed. Thanks for the morning inspiration, old silly!

    Loved all three, but #2 really grabbed me. Nice deep thoughts to inspire this morning, old silly – thanks. 🙂

    Great words of wisdom, old silly!

    Always enjoy your Saturday pontifications, Marvin! The one about the moment of understanding is especially good! Wouldn’t it be great if we could grasp more of those! Thanks for sharing the bits of wisdom today.

    Pontificate all you want. Good words of wisdom for me.

    I wondered if you were even aware of the tweets, I don’t recall you ever acknowledging.

    I’m sure you have plenty of time to just sit around and comment on everything that happens in cyber.

    Until later, treasure yourself!
