    When real and nonreal both
    Are absent from before the mind,
    Nothing else remains for mind to do
    But rest in perfect peace, from concepts free.

    By all means marry; if you get a good wife you'll be happy. If you get a bad one you'll be a philosopher.

    If you are ever doing business with someone of a religious nature be sure to get it all in writing; his word don't mean sh*t when God is telling him how to screw you over on the deal. ~William S. Borroughs

    Love is rather like having the measles:
    it's that much worse when it happens late.

    Actually, better to be wise. (something to which I am unaccustomed)

    I left the conversation.

    A single conversation across a table with a wise man is worth a month's study of books.

    Psalm 91:1-4 (New International Version)

    Psalm 91

    He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

    I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust."

    Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
    and from the deadly pestilence.

    He will cover you with his feathers,
    and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

    “To suppose that practice and realisation are not one is nothing but a heretical view; in buddha-dharma they are inseparable. Because practice of the present moment is practice-realisation, the practice of beginner’s mind is itself the entire realisation.”

    Dogen.
