A bubble of air in the blood, a drop of water in the brain, and a man is out of gear, his machine falls to pieces, his thought vanishes, the world disappears from him like a dream at morning. On what a spider thread is hung our individual existence! - Hendri-Frederic Amiel

Human life when rightly lived is simple ... but it is not rightly lived while it is bound to a complexity of lusts, desires, and wants – these are not the real life but the burning fever and painful disease which originate in an unenlightened condition of mind. - James Allen

I accept that life is uncertain – that the goal is not to become more certain about anything but to relax more into the mystery of not knowing what will come next. And then, miracle of miracles, out there in the deep and uncertain water, I come into a peaceful knowing – a faithful wisdom that surpasses control and certainty. - Elizabeth Lesser
