Yesterday I posted a poem “On Zen” by Daio Kokushi.
The haunting lines…
It is Dharma truly beyond form and sound;
It is Tao having nothing to do with words.
In the middle of these thoughts the city library has a book sale…Argh.
A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting. Henry David Thoreau
No two persons ever read the same book. Edmund Wilson
One rainy Sunday when I was in the third grade, I picked up a book to look at the pictures and discovered that even though I did not want to, I was reading. I have been a reader ever since. Beverly Cleary
You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children. Madeleine L’Engle
