Aphoristic statements are quoted in writings as well as in daily speech. The fact that they contain truth gives them universal acceptance. Scores of philosophers, politicians, writers, artists, athletes, and other individuals are remembered for their famous aphoristic words.
You can teach yourself to write philosophical or moral truths. You focus on human experiences and help readers relate your brief words to their own lives.
