Zen


1- Talking silence (Dogen):

“Avoid unnecessary words.
Speak with your mind.
Read people’s minds.”

2- Being a fool (Master Ikkyu):

“How to reach out?
Listen… ask.”
“How can I obtain wisdom?
Be a fool.”

3- Gentle Face (Shin-Hiu)

“Gentle face means a happy spirit,
Let people know it.
Let people see it.
What if they resent it?
Since they need it, they will come to love it.”
