The flowers fall, for all our yearning;
The weeds grow, regardless of our dislike.
– Zen saying

I don’t believe that people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.
– Joseph Campbell

Refraining from all evil, not clinging to birth and death, working in deep compassion for all sentient being, respecting those over you and pitying those below you, without any detesting or desiring, worrying or lamentation – this is what is called Buddha. Do not search beyond it.
– Dogen

When we are unable to find tranquility within ourselves, it is useless to seek it elsewhere.
– La Rouchefoucauld
