“Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others, past and present. And by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.”

“If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow.”

“Relationships aren't here to make us happy (for true happiness lies within) - they’re here to make us profoundly conscious.”

“I have realized that the past and future are real illusions, that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all there is.”

“Man shouldn't be able to see his own face – there’s nothing more sinister. Nature gave him the gift of not being able to see it, and of not being able to stare into his own eyes. Only in the water of rivers and ponds could he look at his face. And the very posture he had to assume was symbolic. He had to bend over, stoop down, to commit the ignominy of beholding himself. The inventor of the mirror poisoned the human heart.”

“A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. It just blooms.” —  Zen Shin Talks
