"A conquering army on the border will not be stopped by eloquence." - Otto von Bismarck (1-Ik)

“A conquering army on the border will not be stopped by eloquence.” – Otto von Bismarck (1-Ik)

I like good quotes, which is why I keep copying them into my posts. A good quote puts into words good ideas and points to wise and deep courses of thought. The day of good communications is known as Ik, the sign of the wind and spirit (among other meanings).

In the glyph, the horizontal line represents the wind, and the perpendicular line is a tree. Trees and winds are intimately related in the Mayan culture, and might even be considered to be one organism. The wind carries seeds across great distances, and they fall to become new trees at new locations. The trees reciprocate by ‘calming’ strong and destructive winds down, softening and dispersing them, as they pass through them.

In the same way, good ideas are like seeds that fertilize new lands when they are communicated (like a quote).

A good idea moves mountains and meets deadlines with great gusto. It’s a glimpse of what a better reality could look like, which sets wheels in motion.

Good communications are key in any community, be it a community of brain cells (as in good thinking) or a beehive (good honey) or a Kibbutz (good parties).

    • I might suggest clicking a specific post you’d like to print, and then try to print. What’s the problem? How does it not print?
      Thanks for the valuable feedback,
