Ursula K. Le Guin, The Farthest Shore

“Only what is mortal bears life, Arren. Only in death is there rebirth. The Balance is not a stillness. it is a movement--an eternal becoming.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Farthest Shore

“We are never further from the truth than when we are certain.”
Rodney Smith, Stepping Out of Self-Deception: The Buddha's Liberating Teaching of No-Self

“Newspapers rely on keeping us in a constant state of anxiety, on diverting our emotions away from the things that really matter to us. Why should I yield to their power and let them tell me what to think?”
