The following are just a few aphorisms from one of my favorite collections: Unkempt Thoughts by the Polish writer Stanislaw Jerszy Lec.
I find that the slower I read them, the more I savour them.
They are simply superb.
- All is in the hands of man. Therefore wash them often.
- The first condition of immortality is death.
- It isn't easy to live after death. It takes a lifetime.
- Thoughts, like fleas, jump from man to man. But they don't bite everybody.
- Even the masochists tell everything when tortured. From sheer gratitude.
- Even his ignorance is encyclopedic.
- Transparent aims cast a shadow.
