"Mountains should be climbed with as little effort as possible and without desire. The reality of your own nature should determine the speed. If you become restless, speed up. If you become winded slow down. You climb the mountain in an equilibrium between restlessness and exhaustion. When you are no longer thinking ahead, each footstep isn't just a means to an end, but a unique event in itself. THIS leaf has jagged edges. This rock looks loose. From this place the snow is less visible, even though closer. These are the things that you should notice anyway. To live life only for some future goal is shallow. Its the sides of the mountain where people live, not the top. Here is where things grow." Robert M. Pirsig - Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.

“Peace is to be found only within, and unless one finds it there he will never find it at all. Peace lies not in the external world. It lies within one's own soul.” i don't know who wrote it, but I love it.
I am now interested in reading the four agreements. One of my favorite quotes: Destiny is not a matter of chance. It is a matter of Choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, It is a thing to be achieved.
William Jennings Bryan

"...an obstacle to overcome - This is where impatience, frustration, and stress arise, and in our culture, it is many people's everyday reality, their normal state. Life, which is now, is seen as 'problem,' and you come to inhabit a world of problems that all need to be solved before you can be happy, fulfilled, or really start living - or so you think. The problem is this: For every problem that is solved, another pops up. As long as the present moment is seen as an obstacle, there can be no end to problems." Eckhart Tolle
