“Trying to understand is like straining through muddy water. Have the patience to wait! Be still and allow the mud to settle.” 
― Lao TzuTao Te Ching

“Man suffers only because he takes seriously what the gods made for fun.” 
― Alan W. Watts

“Vulnerability is the only authentic state. Being vulnerable means being open, for wounding, but also for pleasure. Being open to the wounds of life means also being open to the bounty and beauty. Don’t mask or deny your vulnerability: it is your greatest asset. Be vulnerable: quake and shake in your boots with it. the new goodness that is coming to you, in the form of people, situations, and things can only come to you when you are vulnerable, i.e. open.” 
― Stephen Russell
