The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.

Look to this day,
for it is life,
the very life of life.
In it's brief course lie all
the realities and verities of existence,
the bliss of growth,
the splendor of action,
the glory of power--

For yesterday is but a dream,
and tomorrow is only a vision,
but today, well lived
makes every yesterday a dream of happiness
and every tomorrow a vision of hope.

The first day of autumn
returning from alms round
I set down my bowl by the temple
to go play with the children.
Last year: a foolish monk.
This year: no change.

— Ryōkan Taigu
There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.
— Wayne Dyer
That pleasure which is at once the most pure, the most elevating and the most intense, is derived, I maintain, from the contemplation of the beautiful.
— Edgar Allan Poe
This above all: to thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.
— William Shakespeare , "Hamlet"
The sharp edge of a razor is difficult to pass over;
thus the wise say the path to Salvation is hard.
— "Katha Upanishad"
Na życie należy patrzeć w kategoriach artystycznych. Tworzyć z cierpliwością każdy detal i każdy dzień. Wtedy stworzymy przedstawienie o nas. Bo nasze życie jest też przedstawieniem, które wymaga ustawienia prób, możliwości popełniania błędów i wymaga też cierpliwości w kreowaniu efektu, na jaki czekamy.
— Clément "Bartabas" Marty
Our lifes are unto houses built on foundations of sand. An ill wind means the end.

Be here now. Don't anticipate.
Don't yearn for things of the past.
Let the past go with forgiveness,
And let the future go with no anticipation.

Language is the source of misunderstandings.

What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.

If you love a flower that lives on a star, it is sweet to look at the sky at night. All the stars are a-bloom with flowers . . .

"People where you live," the little prince said, "grow five thousand roses in one garden... yet they don't find what they're looking for..." "They don't find it," I answered. "And yet what they're looking for could be found in a single rose, or a little water..." "Of course," I answered. And the little prince added, "But eyes are blind. You have to look with the heart."

-- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, "The Little Prince"
The gate is wide and the road is wide that leads to doom, and many people enter through that gate. But the gate is small and the road is narrow that leads to true life. Only a few people find that road.

One should honor women.
Women are heaven, women are truth,
Women are the supreme fire of transformation.
Women are Buddha, women are the religious community.
Women are the perfection of wisdom.

-- Chandamaharoshana Tantra
Present is the time including all times.
Each second is eternity, and eternity is now,
and now is forever.
— Vorph, "Jupiterian Vibe"
Coming empty-handed, going empty-handed -- that is human.
When you are born, where do you come from?
When you die, where do you go?
Life is like a floating cloud which appears.
Death is like a floating cloud which disappears.
The floating cloud itself originally does not exist.
Life and death, coming and going, are also like this.
But there is one thing which always remains clear.
It is pure and clear, not depending on life and death.
What is that one pure and clear thing?

-- Seung Sahn, "The Human Route"
