Arthur Weil has written a wonderful collection of short aphorisms and sayings. They are easy-to-read comments and idioms on life that cheer a person up and that anybody can relate to.

poignant, and make one smile and reflect on the most important aspects of everyday life.

“Arthur Weil’s nimble mind expresses itself in his discussion-like poetry which ranges widely from a lifetime of human experience, his loves, anxieties, hopefulness, forbearance, questioning, resolution and thankfulness. Happiness and joy abound.”

“Reading Arthur Weil's “shorties” makes one smile, chuckle and ponder everyday situations and relationships. He has an astute ability to see irony and humor in the simplest of daily events, and put them down on paper in witty, wise and often rhyming words. I greatly recommend reading a few pages at a time of this collection of aphorisms and sayings; you will return repeatedly for more!”

“Arthur Weil’s poetry illuminates all the possibilities of life, beautifully, in words that take one by surprise. His insights and revelations give one a profound realization that life is an incredibly rich experience to be savored each day, and that only the examined life is worth living.”
