“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

Hello VeganLiz, Ben, All,

Ben, I'll look forward to that quote when you've got the time.

A little reading matter:

Anatta or soul-lessness by Narada Thera
http://www.buddhanet.net/nutshell09.htm

The Trilogy of Anicca, Dukkha, and Anatta by Bhikkhu Bodhi
http://www.beyondthenet.net/dhamma/trilogy.htm

ANATTA (NON-SELF) by Ajahn Brahmavamso
http://www.what-buddha-taught.net/Books ... ANATTA.htm

None of these have been declared as true by the Buddha:

Thou art that, thou art not that
Thou art both that and not that
Thou art neither that, nor not that
