To Flutterby:

I just read your recent quotes and must say that I love them: Deeply insightful but with no lack of humor! Keep up your good work, I think many can learn from (or should I say through) you... I'll check out those Zen Stories and your homepage after posting a short quote of my own, hoping you maybe didn't know it yet... :)

"To be a successful member of a herd of sheep, primarily you have to be a sheep."

- Albert Einstein, freely translated

And here another (and very special) one:

"Do not search for me in a building of stone and wood, but lift a stone and I will be there, chop a piece of wood and you will find me"

- Jesus, censored by the church but passed on verbally for 2000 years, bion ;)

Yet another one has just occured to me:

"Do first three steps inward, before you do the one outward."

- freely translated from some famous german author (sorry, I forgot who, could be Schiller...)

Remnants from a remembered past (Pieces of a song learned in First Grade)

"This little light of mine,
I'm gonna let it shine,
All the time, let it shine
Shine all over Minco (my home town)
I'm gonna let it shine.
Won't let Satan woof it out,
I'm gonna let it shine.

"This little light of mine,
I'm gonna let it shine,
All the time, let it shine.
Hide it under a bushel, NO!
I'm gonna let it shine.
Won't let Satan woof it out,
I'm going to let it shine,
This little light of mine."
COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS

"If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation, you are ahead of 500 million people in the world."

Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

-Animal Farm
