“Hope's interesting, isn't it? I can't turn hope off, it's hopeless.”
Jeff Bridges, The Dude and the Zen Master

“A famous Japanese Zen master, Hakuun Yasutani Roshi, said that unless you can explain Zen in words that a fisherman will comprehend, you don’t know what you’re talking about. Some fifty years ago a UCLA professor told me the same thing about applied mathematics. We like to hide from the truth behind foreign-sounding words or mathematical lingo. There’s a saying: The truth is always encountered but rarely perceived. If we don’t perceive it, we can’t help ourselves and we can’t much help anyone else.”
Jeff Bridges, The Dude and the Zen Master

“Being alive, you have to do something. Not doing anything is also some kind of action.”
Jeff Bridges, The Dude and the Zen Master
