O Ultimate, the Whole, help me

so that my speech is rooted

in my heart and my heart is rooted

in the speech.


~ Upanishads



Those desiring speedily to be

A refuge for themselves and others

Should make the interchange of "I" and "other,"

And thus embrace a sacred mystery.


~ Shantideva, The Way of the Bodhisattva




What is it you have come to tell me?


~ Robert Duncan
