A Quote by Cecelia Ahern on ordinariness and mundane

Day-to-day things, the mundane, are what keeps the motor running.  How extraordinary the ordinary really is, a tool we all use to keep going, a template for sanity.

A Quote by Lin Chi on buddhahood, fool, laugh, wisdom, and ordinariness

When it's time to get dressed, put on your clothes.
When you must walk, then walk.
When you must sit, then sit.
Just be your ordinary self in ordinary life,
unconcerned in seeking for Buddhahood.
When you're tired, lie down.
The fool will laugh at you
but the wise man will understand.

Lin Chi

If you live the sacred and despise the ordinary, you are still bobbing in the ocean of delusion.
