Gordian Knots

I prefer to unravel rather than cut

Cutting is more effective

Cutting is painful

Cutting is severing

Unraveling is slow

Unraveling is frustrating

Unraveling is gentle

Rough people cut because they cannot be troubled

Barbarians with broad swords

Thugs with knife

Butchers with cleavers

Gentle people unravel because they need to see the original preserved

Old masters with brushes

Archeologists with fine tools

Philosophers with nimble thought

When brute meets brain there is war
