"Act as you wish and regard nothing as sacred." - Sacred clown proverb  Via
"Mindfulness is nothing more or less than the practice of attention. Zen wants us to wake up from the sleepwalk of the routine and automatic - to bring full attention to our walking and talking, hearing and breathing, eating and working - to every aspect of our lives. There is no right or wrong way of doing things; there is only being more or less conscious. The goal is not to correct ourselves but to become more fully conscious of ourselves. Instead of struggling to improve ourselves, we can bring attention to the way we view the world around us and to our reactions and responses to it. Experienced mindfully, everything becomes a vehicle for liberation." - Laurence G. Boldt, Zen Soup
"Don’t be afraid to do the obvious... really well (sometimes miracles even hang around, waiting for you to call, write, or show up)." - The Universe
"Get the few main lines and see what lines they call out." - Robert Henri

"Nietzsche was the one who did the job for me. At a certain moment in his life, the idea came to him of what he called 'the love of your fate' (Amor fati).

If you bring love to that moment—not discouragement—you will find the strength is there." - Joseph Campbell
