*Wise Man Once Said = WMOS
Me: So how goes your day?
WMOS: The songbird can chirp, but the branches are weak.
Me: What’s wrong then?
WMOS: Dam that holds water has torn asunder.
Me: Too much to do at work?
WMOS: The Heavens send rain, but the people can only beg.
Me: No help from the bosses huh? Why don’t you try talking to them?
WMOS: Like light off the water’s edge.
Me: I’m sure they’re not that unreasonable.
WMOS: Blessed, you can take a tree with a butter knife.
Me: Maybe it’s time you started looking for a new job? I mean, all you’ve done with this one is complain about how bad it is.
WMOS: The ship follows the winds, but the sea may not be as agreeable.
Me: Ahh… but that’s a big sea out there!
WMOS: Seen from behind a cage, the lion resembles a pussycat.
Me: So you’re gonna stay on?
WMOS: Knowing its fate, the salmon continues upstream.
Me: If you’re unhappy, quit!
WMOS: A tree uprooted leaves no soil.
Me: Don’t you have savings?
WMOS: The dandelion seeks help from the winds.
Me: I’m not loaning you any money!
WMOS: A steady stream rusts iron, kills fire, and splits stone.
Me: You’ve a plan? Let’s hear it.
WMOS: Hong Bao Draw.
WMOS: The meek follow a different god.
Me: The fat bird won’t sing, so it blames the lousy branch.
