Quotation The real position of an awakened person in relation to existence is that of a person in the process of reading a book — I am the reader and I never forget that... But my fundamental non-implication in the hero's turns of fortune in no way affects the reader's pleasure, nor even an identification with the hero!
- Stephen Jourdain

You know that you (as presence-awareness) are here, that something is happening. The bare actuality of being here is undeniable and impossible to doubt, needing no proof or belief. This presence (or emptiness) is the water in every wave. It cannot be grasped or possessed, and yet, it is always right here, unavoidable and thus unattainable. This is the jewel, and this jewel is showing up as absolutely everything.
- Joan Tollifson

The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao; the name that can be named is not the eternal name.
- Laozi (the Tao Te Ching)

Are not our desires inseparably intertwined with the continuation of life? Even the idea of eliminating desire is fruitless. The desire to eliminate all desire is still itself a desire. How can we find release and peace by replacing one desire with another? Surely we shall find peace not by eliminating desire, but by finding its fulfilment and satisfaction in the One who created it.
- Sadhu Sundar Singh

Zen tells man that he is free now, that no chain exists which he needs to throw off; he has only the illusion of chains. Man will enjoy his freedom as soon as he ceases to believe that he needs to free himself, as soon as he throws from his shoulders the terrible duty of salvation.
- Hubert Benoit

We are at war between consciousness and nature, between the desire for permanence and the fact of flux. It is ourself against ourselves.
- Alan Watts

The description is not the described; I can describe the mountain, but the description is not the mountain, and if you are caught up in the description, as most people are, then you will never see the mountain.
- Jiddu Krishnamurti

I have simply stopped arguing with reality. How do I know the wind should blow? It's blowing. How do I know this is the highest order? It's happening. Arguing with 'what is' is like teaching a cat to bark.
- Byron Katie

The setting sun is reflected from the windows of the almshouse as brightly as from the rich man's abode... Superfluous wealth can buy superfluities only. Money is not required to buy one necessary of the soul.
- Henry David Thoreau

As life lives on for its own sake, needing no reason for being, so the just man has no reason for doing what he does.
- Meister Eckhart

The light of consciousness passes through the film of memory and throws pictures on your brain. Because of the deficient and disordered state of your brain, what you perceive is distorted and colored by feelings of like and dislike. Make your thinking orderly and free from emotional overtones,and you will see people and things as they are, with clarity and charity.
- Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Just as a whirlwind roaring down a valley leaves nothing behind it, so the ear is to have nothing to do with right and wrong. Just as the moon only reflects its light in a pool, so the mind, empty and unattached, does not know itself and the outside world as two things.
- from The Gospel According to Zen

When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.
- Jiddu Krishnamurti

It is not worth the while to go round the world to count the cats in Zanzibar.
- Henry David Thoreau

Some days you think maybe you know everything...
Some days you think maybe you don't know anything...
Some days you think you know a few things...
Some days you don't even know how old you are.
- Charlie Brown

We shall grapple with the ineffable, and see if we may not eff it after all.
- Douglas Adams

Rarely is the question asked, "Is our children learning?"
- George W. Bush

A proof is a proof. What kind of a proof? It's a proof. A proof is a proof. And when you have a good proof, it's because it's proven.
- Jean Chretien
