Quotes of the day... 5/4/16

“My mother was taught 
the ch'an concept of happiness, 
which was to find satisfaction in small things. 
I was taught to appreciate 
the fresh air in the morning, 
the color of leaves turning red in autumn 
and the water's smoothness 
when I soaked my hands in the basin.”
     ~ Anchee Min

“The most important lesson he taught me 
was that there was no one singular perspective 
on things or emotions in the universe—
no one way of comprehending truth.”
     ~ Anchee Min
