Everything is based on mind, is led by mind, is fashioned by mind. If you speak and act with a polluted mind, suffering will follow you, as the wheels of the oxcart follow the footsteps of the ox. Everything is based on mind, is led by mind, is fashioned by mind. If you speak and act with a pure mind, happiness will follow you, as a shadow clings to a form.
~ Gautam Buddha

Great literature is simply language charged with meaning to the utmost possible degree.
~ Ezra Pound
We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future.
