History is the devil's scripture.

We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are.
For life in general, there is but one decree: youth is a blunder, manhood a struggle, old age a regret.

The more you live in the present moment, the more the fear of death disappears.
The true value of a human being is determined primarily by the measure and the sense in which he has attained to liberation from the self.
If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire, then you got a problem. Everything else is inconvenience.
We must be willing to fail and to appreciate the truth that often 'Life is not a problem to be solved, but a mystery to be lived.'
Freedom would be not to choose between black and white but to abjure such prescribed choices.

As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.
Enjoy when you can, and endure when you must.

Some days you're the bug, some days you're the windshield.
Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live.
