Quote of the Moment

"The Greatest Part of Mankind, nay, of all Christians, may be said to be asleep; that particular way of Life, which takes up each Man's Mind, Thoughts and Actions, may be very well called his particular dream. The Learned and the Ignorant, the Rich and the Poor, are all in the same state of slumber, passing away a short life in a different kind of Dream."

- William Law

"If you persist in trying to attain what is never attained (It is Tao's Gift!), If you persist in making effort to obtain what effort cannot get, If you persist in reasoning about what cannot be understood, You will be destroyed by the very thing you seek. To know when to stop, To know when you can get no further by your own action, This is the right beginning! "
