Read in October, 2009

Chanced upon this at the library the other day when I was returning some DVDs. Very readable approach to making some sense of life and connecting with what's really important.

Favourite quotes so far:

"We're all bozos on the bus, so we might as well sit back and enjoy the ride." - Wavy Gravy, clown-activist

"We are built to make mistakes, coded for error." Lewis Thomas, physician and science writer

"Discovering fearlessness comes from working with the softness of the human heart." - Chogyam Trungpa, Buddhist monk
