"Just as the wind carries thousands of winged seeds, so each moment brings with it germs of spiritual vitality that come to rest imperceptibly in our minds and wills."
"For fast-acting relief, try slowing down."
Confucius, at age 70
At fifteen I was committed to learning.
At thirty I took my rightful position.
At forty, I was no longer totally perplexed.
At fifty, I began to understand the unfolding of my true nature.
At sixty, I was in harmony with contradictions and ambivalence.
At seventy, at long last, I may follow my heart's desire without going astray.
"We don't think ourselves into a new way of living; we live ourselves into a new way of thinking."
"When we quit thinking primarily about ourselves and our own self-preservation, we undergo a truly heroic transformation of consciousness."
