The Sweetest Strawberry:
A man traveling across a field encountered a tiger.
He fled, the tiger after him.
Coming to a precipice,
he caught hold of the root of a wild vine
and swung himself over the edge.
The tiger sniffed at him from above.
Trembling, the man looked down to where,
far below, another tiger was waiting to eat him.
Only the vine sustained him.
Two mice, one white and one black,
little by little started to gnaw away the vine.
The man then saw a luscious strawberry near him.
Grasping the vine with one hand,
he plucked the strawberry with the other.
How sweet it tasted.
- Zen Koan

There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil

to produce that misery
which he strives in vain to relieve.
- Henry David Thoreau

Forgiveness is not a one time thing.
Forgiveness must be practiced again and again in different ways
because we may find many dimensions to the wrongs we have suffered.

and extinguished the last seed.

lest we be overrun by the weeds of bitterness and regret.

I (Just after publication): The novelty is absurd
and subversive of Religion and Morality.
The propounder both fool and knave.

and will yield a full and satisfactory
explanation of things in general -
The propounder a man of sublime genius and perfect virtue.

things in general after all, and therefore is a wretched failure.
The propounder a very ordinary person advertised by a clique.

Explains as much as could reasonably be expected.
The propounder worthy of all honor
in spite of his share of human frailties,
as one who has added to the permanent possessions of science.
