Quotes

  • Thich Nhat Hanh

No mud – no lotus

Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy

Enlightenment is when a wave realises it is the ocean.


  • Jon Kabat-Zinn

You are never alone. And you already belong. You belong to humanity. You belong to life. You belong to this moment, this breath


  • Rumi

Grief can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in your life’s search for love and wisdom.

Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.


  • Khenpo Tsültrim Gyamtso Rinpoche

The Seven Delights


  • Shunryu Suzuki

“Life is like stepping onto a boat which is about to sail out to sea and sink.”


  • Pema Chödron  

We think that the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart.
