If the teaching doesn't feel like it's forcing something upon you, it's not good teaching.
—Shunryu Suzuki

When it is winter, speak cold; when it is summer, speak hot.

Don't draw another's bow, don't ride another's horse, don't mind another's business.

However innumerable sentient beings, I vow to save them. However inexhaustible the passions, I vow to extinguish them. However immeasurable the dharmas, I vow to master them. However incomparable the Buddha's truth, I vow to attain it.
—The Four Vows

To ask the hard question is simple.
—W. H. Auden

There are years that ask questions and years that answer.
—Zola Neale Hurston

From birth to death, it's just like this.
—Zen saying
