The aim is just to include very short ‘aphoristic’ poems here. But there may be some longer ones.

He does not accept himself
In order to make himself
Acceptable to himself

Truth is an acquired taste – in the same way that vulnerability is an acquired taste. Why would anyone willingly expose themselves to being wrong, again and again and again …?

“Winning does not tempt that man.
His growth is this: to be defeated
by ever greater forces.”

Rilke

‎… the sweetest thing of all … (4 minutes in)

If I were rich, I’d have the time that I lack
To sit in the synagogue and pray.
And maybe have a seat by the Eastern wall.
And I’d discuss the holy books with the learned men, several hours every day.
That would be the sweetest thing of all.
