Some light humour

Postby Ben » Fri May 22, 2009 6:27 am

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

I've seen/heard some pretty high-powered Buddhists do the same thing ... you know, bodhisattvas wherever you look, that sort of thing.

Oh well, it's probably cheaper than a day at the amusement park.
