“...we tear down the places where birds live, and put up places where people live, or places where people work to earn the money to pay for the places they live. We don't ask the birds for permission, nor do they complain about it. To a bird there is no tearing down or putting up.”

Henry David Thoreau

“There is a simple way to become buddha: When you refrain from unwholesome actions, are not attached to birth and death, and are compassionate toward all sentient beings, respectful to seniors and kind to juniors, not excluding or desiring anything, with no designing thoughts or worries, you will be called a buddha. Do not seek anything else.”
Dōgen, Moon in a Dewdrop: Writings of Zen Master Dogen
