A Quote by Taisen Deshimaru Roshi on buddhism, confidence, egotism, goals, guidance, knowledge, memory, mountains, wisdom, and path

Following the Smell of Flowers As told by Taisen Deshimaru Roshi A master was walking in the mountains. When he came back, one of his disciples asked him: "Master, where do you go to walk? "In the mountain" Answered the master. The disciple insisted, "But what path did you take? What did you see?" The master answered, "I followed the smell of flowers, and I wandered with the young shoots." We must let ourselves be guided by the dharma of the Buddha and have confidence in the grass and the flowers that grow, without goal or ego, naturally and unconsciously. The master's answer flows from the spring of wisdom. True wisdom is created beyond knowledge and memory.

Roshi (1914 - 1982)

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on egotism, faith, and reason

In the woods we return to reason and faith. Standing on the bare ground - my head bathed by the blithe air, and uplifted into infinite space - all mean egotism vanishes. . . . The currents of the Universal Being circulate through me.

A Quote by Northrop Frye on beauty, danger, egotism, goodness, nonsense, temptation, and truth

The pursuit of beauty is much more dangerous nonsense than the pursuit of truth or goodness, because it affords a stronger temptation to the ego.

To men and women who want to do things, there is nothing quite so driving as the force of an imprisoned ego. . . . All genius comes from this class.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on challenge, coaching, egotism, justice, motivation, needs, and relationships

What keeps you motivated? The challenge of putting all the elements of a team together and seeing how you do and what you become is the thing that I still enjoy. I also enjoy the associations and relationships with the players and other coaches - to be in the arena, so to speak. I still enjoy that. I'm also at the point, though, that if we're not doing well - it's tough enough as it is - that I'm not going to be hanging on just to be hanging on. Because it's not anything I need from an ego standpoint or anything else. I just thoroughly enjoy what I'm doing.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on awareness, body, death, egotism, emotion, guidance, life, self-awareness, virtue, and wisdom

The new life created by the final integration is self-aware yet without ego, capable of inhabiting a body yet not attached to it, and guided by wisdom rather than emotion. Whole and virtuous, it can never die.

Lao Tzu (c.604 - 531 B.C.)
