Buddha Nature

Famous quotes containing the words buddha and/or nature:

    Brute force crushes many plants. Yet the plants rise again. The Pyramids will not last a moment compared with the daisy. And before Buddha or Jesus spoke the nightingale sang, and long after the words of Jesus and Buddha are gone into oblivion the nightingale still will sing. Because it is neither preaching nor commanding nor urging. It is just singing. And in the beginning was not a Word, but a chirrup.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    Two well-assorted travellers use
    The highway, Eros and the muse.
    From the twins is nothing hidden,
    To the pair is naught forbidden;
    Hand in hand the comrades go
    Every nook of nature through:
    Each for the other they were born,
    Each can other best adorn.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
