Planning -/- Learning

2:9
Planning

Thoroughly investigating prevenient futurities
Prevents disastrous eventualities

As night’s counsel wisest
Sleep upon deliberations

Simple initiatives easily succeed
Complexity invites complications

Listening to idle talk
Dooms vital plans

***

Aim, exertion, obstacles, profit:
Balance before activity

Resources, method, timing, location:
Consider before execution

Very clever, canny rabbits
Dig several burrows


2:10
Learning

Because learning spreads learning
Yearn learning’s increase

Thoroughly learn one’s learning
Then live it

Tho’ wealth perishes eventually
Learning, used, increases

Savants understand teachings’ meanings
Pedants memorize texts

***

Better mastering single fields
Than dilettanting ten

Instructions assimilated in youth
Engraved in stone

Automonic alumni resemble timber
Ambitious graduates trees
