Quotes by David Hinton  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“We are the empty awareness (empty mind) that watches identity rehearsing itself in thoughts and memories relentlessly coming and going. Eventually the stream of thought falls silent, and you inhabit empty mind, free of that center of identity -free, that is, of the self-absorbed and relentless process of thought that precludes CONTACT in our day to day experience. It is here that you inhabit the full depth of immediate.

Chinese poetry gets back near the process of nature by means of its vivid image, and its wealth of images. The prehistoric poets who created language discovered the whole harmonious framework of nature. We should avoid “is” and bring in a wealth of neglected English verbs.”
David Hinton, The Wilds of Poetry: Adventures in Mind and Landscape

“Wherever the mind dwells apart is itself a distant place.”
David Hinton, Classical Chinese Poetry: An Anthology

“Rather than simply obey political power and implore the spirits to shape your fate in positive ways, the question of wisdom arises, and the empowerment that wisdom offers: act wisely and good things happen, act unwisely and bad things happen.”
David Hinton, I Ching: The Book of Change
