Just a BUNCH of quotes...

You must discern the result in the cause, and discern the cause in the result. -Ta-sui

Mindfulness is never boring. -Bhante Henepola Gunaratana, "Mindfulness in Plain English"

Is like a cow that grazes about wearing a tiger's skin.

He who conceals himself beneath saintly robes and commits sins
Is like the hunter who hides in the bushes to snare unwary birds.
-Tirukkural 28: 273-274

Avoid the crowd. Do your own thinking independently. Be the chess player, not the chess piece. - Ralph Charell

In the beginning mindfulness takes away worries and fears about past and future and keeps us anchored in the present. In the end it points to the right view of the self. -Ayya Khema, "Be and Island"

You can only have bliss if you don't chase it. -Bhante Henepola Gunaratana, "Mindfulness in Plain English"
