“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

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

“You’ve got to take care of yourself on the path, not just when you cross the goal line, because don’t forget, wherever you are, that’s the goal line.”
Jeff Bridges, The Dude and the Zen Master
