Be the Buddha

Instead of quoting the Buddha,
be the Buddha.

Eckhart Tolle

Can't Save Them All

It's not a therapist's job
to save every marriage.

Michele Weiner-Davis

Half Lifes

The first half of life is devoted to the cultural process - gaining one's skills, raising a family, disciplining one's self in a hundred different ways; the second half of life is devoted to restoring the wholeness (making holy) of life.

Wild and Precious Life

Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?

Mary Oliver

Something That Cannot Be Given

You can have the courage to climb the mountain,
swim the lakes, go on a raft to the other side of
the Atlantic or Pacific. That any fool can do, but
the courage to be on your own, to stand on your
two solid feet, is something that cannot be given
by somebody.

U.G. Krishnamurti

Opiate of the Masses

Gender, not religion,
is the opiate of the masses.

Erving Goffman

It Is Easier

It is easier to build strong children
than to repair broken men.

Frederick Douglass
