ms hepburn,
this thread is so much fun - these are all for you

Life is hard. After all, it kills you.

If you want to sacrifice the admiration of many men for the criticism of one, go ahead, get married.

Why slap them on the wrist with feather when you can belt them over the head with a sledgehammer.

If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun.

all by the venerable, katherine hepburn

Xxoo.

Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds! And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life? If then you are not able to do so small a thing as that, why do you worry about the rest? Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith! - Jesus of Nazareth, Gospel according to Luke 12:22-28

To find a buddha, you have to see your nature. Whoever sees his nature is a buddha. If you don't see your nature, invoking buddhas, reciting sutras, making offerings and keeping precepts are all useless. - Bodhidharma


Ah, so many more. Great topic :D


thanks these are really beautiful and thought provoking. I have jotted them down in my personal diary

Fulfillment has nothing to do with circumstances.

Kindness in words creates confidence.
Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.
Kindness in giving creates love.

Lao Tzu

If you are depressed, you are living in the past.
If you are anxious, you are living in the future.
If you are at peace, you are living in the present.

Lao Tzu
