A Quote by Nichiren Daishonin on heaven, buddah, soul, and value

"Flint has the potential to produce fire, and gems have intrinsic value.  We ordinary people can see neither our own eyelashes, which are so close, nor the heavens in the distance.  Likewise, we do not see that the Buddha exists in our own hearts." 

Nichiren Daishonin

A Quote by Charlotte Perkins Gilman on buddah, life, and death

It is told that Buddha, going out to look on life, was greatly daunted by death. "They all eat one another!" he cried, and called it evil. This process I examined, changed the verb, said, "They all feed one another," and called it good.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860 - 1935)
