4 posts in this topic

Imagine a mountain. Six miles long, six miles wide, six miles high. And very hundred years a bird flies over the mountain with a silk scarf in its beak; and it runs this silk scarf over the mountain once every hundred years. The length of time it would take the silk scarf to wear away the mountain - that’s how long we’ve been doing this.

This life is less than a blink of an eye.

"The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same." -Carlos Castaneda
