Orinoco Womble (tidy bag and all) | 155 comments You can never notice your own enlightenment. --Nishijima Sensei

I'd go along with that. Like being "charitable" or "compassionate" or "kind"--if you're it, you're so busy being it you don't notice.


Orinoco Womble (tidy bag and all) | 155 comments “All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

--Christopher Dawson, The Judgement of Nations


Orinoco Womble (tidy bag and all) | 155 comments “Risk anything! Care no more for the opinion of others ... Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth."

(Journal entry, 14 October 1922)” Journal of Katherine Mansfield


Orinoco Womble (tidy bag and all) | 155 comments "Any time you catch folks lying, they are scared of something. Lying is dodging. People with guts don't lie. They tell the truth and then if they have to, they fight it out. You lay yourself open by lying. The other fellow knows right off that you are scared of him and he's more than apt to tackle you. If he don't do nothing, he starts looking down on you. Truth is a letter from courage."
--Zora Neale Hurston, Dust Tracks on a Road
