Random information on the term “Truism”:
An aphorism (from Greek ἀφορισμός: aphorismos, “delimitation”, “distinction”, “definition”) can be a terse saying, expressing a general truth or principle, or it can be an astute observation.
An aphorism is spoken or written in a laconic and memorable form.
The term was first used in the Aphorisms of Hippocrates, a long series of propositions concerning the symptoms and diagnosis of disease and the art of healing and medicine. The oft-cited first sentence of this work (see Ars longa, vita brevis) is:
Life is short, art long, opportunity fleeting, experience deceptive, judgment difficult.
It was later applied to maxims of physical science, then statements of all kinds of philosophical, moral, or literary principles. In modern usage, an aphorism is generally understood to be a concise statement containing a subjective truth or observation, cleverly and pithily written.
Aphorisms should not be confused with axioms. Aphorisms came into being as the result of experience, whereas axioms are self-evident truths, requiring no proof. Aphorisms have been especially used in dealing with subjects to which no methodical or scientific treatment was applied till later, such as art, agriculture, medicine, jurisprudence and politics.
Random information on the term “AXIOM”:
Axiom were a rock band formed in Melbourne in 1969 and included musicians Glenn Shorrock and Brian Cadd.
Axiom’s formation was a by-product of the annual Hoadley’s Battle of the Sounds in which the top Australian bands of the day performed in front of judges for the prize of a paid return trip to London. In 1967 The Twilights were the first winners, the next year The Groop. Both found it difficult to settle back to the grind of the Australian pop scene after tasting the London big time. Neither band had made anything but the smallest dent in London (The Twilights being given a song by the Hollies, while The Groop’s “When I Was Six Years Old” was recorded by Manfred Mann’s Paul Jones), but it was enough to leave the lingering thought amongst band members, “What if..?”
The Groop broke up in late 1969, by which time The Twilights had already split and singer Glenn Shorrock had moved into management. A plan was hatched to form a new group out of the two groups’ frontline remnants; there was some controversy surrounding the break-up of The Groop, with Go-Set magazine hinting that Cadd and Mudie had split the band to join Axiom without telling the other members about the new group. Twilights’ songwriter and guitarist Terry Britten was supposed to join Shorrock and The Groop’s piano player and chief songwriter Brian Cadd in the new band, but when Britten chose to go to England instead, his place was taken by The Groop’s Don Mudie, who in the latter stages of The Groop had formed a strong songwriting partnership with Cadd. The group was completed by Cam-Pact guitarist Chris Stockley, and Valentines drummer Doug Lavery. Immediately dubbed a supergroup, the band asked fans to suggest a name and settled on Axiom.
