My Zen teacher told me to do the opposite of everything he said.
So I didn't.

To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. Not to dare is to lose oneself.

I see my path, but I don't know where it leads. Not knowing where I'm going is what inspires me to travel it.

Through a circle that ever returneth in
To the self-same spot,
And much of Madness and more of Sin
And Horror the Soul of the Plot.

"Now you understand the Oriental passion for tea," said Japhy. "Remember that book I told you about; the first sip is joy, the second is gladness, the third is serenity, the fourth is madness, the fifth is ecstasy."

By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third, by experience, which is the most bitter.

In England once there lived a big
And wonderfully clever pig.
To everybody it was plain
That Piggy had a massive brain.
He worked out sums inside his head,
There was no book he hadn't read,
He knew what made an airplane fly,
He knew how engines worked and why.
He knew all this, but in the end
One question drove him round the bend:
He simply couldn't puzzle out
What LIFE was really all about.

Roald Dahl

when men are most sure and arrogant they are commonly most mistaken, giving views to passion without that proper deliberation which alone can secure them from the grossest absurdities.
