“Don't think of what you have to do, don't consider how to carry it out!" he exclaimed. "The shot will only go smoothly when it takes the archer himself by surprise.”
Eugen Herrigel, Zen in the Art of Archery

“What stands in your way is that you have a much too willful will. You think that what you do not do yourself does not happen.”
Eugen Herrigel, Zen in the Art of Archery

“The right art," cried the Master, "is purposeless, aimless! The more obstinately you try to learn how to shoot the arrow for the sake of hitting the goal, the less you will succeed in the one and the further the other will recede. What stands in your way is that you have a much too willful will. You think that what you do not do yourself does not happen.”
Eugen Herrigel
