Aphorisms for the Uncommon Reader

On July 15, 2020, my new book, Aphorisms for the Uncommon Reader, was released by Logica Books and is available at Amazon, B&N, Book Depository, and local bookstores. It provides a review of this briefest and broadest form of the literary arts, followed by 400 original, thought-provoking, and humorous insights, for example:

  • The toucan sees nothing unusual in the mirror.
  • We make lifelong friends while we are young and indiscriminate.
  • Capitalism:  n.  An ingenious system for creating work for workers, wealth for the wealthy, and poverty for the poor.
  • You can learn what you have to say only by listening when you speak.
  • Perceptions:  n. pl.  Images from our past distorted to accommodate the objects currently before us.
  • Happiness isn’t something that happens to us. It’s something we do.
  • We usually understand what we heard, even when we don’t understand what was said.
  • Adulthood:  n.  The developmental stage in which we abandon our selves to become our lives.
  • Militia:  n.  An armed mob organized by shirt color–historically black or brown.
