reflections and observations #2

Just a few quotes for this post I think:

"Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen."
-Hebrews 11:1

"Since things neither exist nor don't exist,
are neither real nor unreal,
are utterly beyond adopting and rejecting -
one might as well burst out laughing."
-Longchenpa, fourteenth-century Tibetan Master

"Whenever we earnestly strive for something and concentrate on attaining it, fate always helps us onward."
-Elisabeth Haich, Initiation

 "Your mindful breath and your smile will bring happiness to you and those around you.  Even if you spend a lot of money on gifts for everyone ... nothing you could buy them can give as much true happiness as your gift of awareness, breathing, and smiling, and these precious gifts cost nothing."
-Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh

"Where all think alike, no one thinks very much."
-Walter Lippman

"It is easier to resist at the beginning than at the end."
-Leonardo da Vinci

"Still water
Occasional ripple
A reflected reality"

"Let none turn over books or roam the stars in quest of God, who sees him not in man."
-Johann Kaspar Lavater, Swiss poet

"Great men are they who see that spiritual is stronger than any material force, that thoughts rule the world."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Just to be is a blessing.  Just to live is holy."
-Rabbi Abraham Herschel

Hey, bro if you see this, and I have still forgotten to bring it up, -do you still have that T.S. Eliot book I let you borrow?  :)
