The wild geese do not intend to cast their reflections. The water has no mind to receive their image - Zen Koan
All banquets must come to an end - Chinese saying
Bend and you will be whole. Curl and you will be straight. Keep empty and you will be filled. Grow old and you will be renewed. Have little and you will gain. Have much and you will be confused - Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching
Look around you, look at all the things you've never seen before.
An atom is to the known universe as the known universe is to the actual universe.
