In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s mind there are few.
Suzuki, Shunryu quotes
- David Suzuki – windmills "If one day I look out from my cabin's porch and see a row of windmills spinning in the distance, I won't curse them. I will praise them. It will mean we are finally getting somewhere." ~David Suzuki
- Suzuki Roshi "Because all existence is founded upon the ever-present state of union, everything already exists in a state of tranquility. However, this state of tranquility is masked from us by our assumption that there is a separation, that there is a problem." ~Suzuki Roshi
- Food For Thought: from The Mind Unleashed "Without healing our childhood wounds and forgiving our parents, we stay emotionally stuck at the age of our earliest wounds, repeating that suffering as adults." ~The Mind Unleashed
- Karen Wright – mind "An undirected mind worries, doubts, fears, and imagines the worst." ~Karen Wright
