Zen for a day without blogging.

Let go over a cliff, die completely, and then come back to life—after that you cannot be deceived.
—Zen saying

Men who wish to know about the world must learn about its particular details.

We do not understand that life is paradise, for it suffices only to wish to understand it, and at once paradise will appear in front of us in its beauty.
—Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Take long walks in storm weather or through deep snows in the fields and woods, if you would keep your spirits up. Deal with brute nature. Be cold and hungry and weary.
—Henry David Thoreau

A homeless bird
looks cold
in the wintry blast.

So let us go forward, quietly, each on his own path, forever making for the light.
—Vincent Van Gogh
