Zen Summary IV

Words may express it, words cannot hold it: the way of letters leaves no trace, Yet the teaching is revealed. - Dogen

Think sideways! - Edward De Bono

The meadows were a-drinking at their leisure; the frogs sat meditating, all Sabbath thoughts, summing up their week, with one eye out on the golden sun, and one toe upon a reed, eyeing the wondrous universe in which they act their part; the fishes swam more staid and soberly, as maidens go to church. - Henry David Thoreau

The fruit drips when it is ripe. - Zen Saying

The frog rises to the surface by the strength of its non-attachment. - Joso

One doesn’t discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time. - Andre Gide
