The intention to do one thing and not another does not originate in consciousness–rather, it appears in consciousness, as does any thought or impulse that might oppose it.
Sam Harris – Free Will
There are those who are aware that they are always facing death. Knowing this, they put aside all quarrels.
– The Dhammapada
I was looking through my kindle when I remembered that I have occasionally underlined some of my favorite quotes. These underlined quotes are then put into my “clippings” section of my kindle so that I can reference them at my leisure. From time to time now, I will post a quote from these clippings until I have covered them all. Today, we begin with something funny.
The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don’t.
– Douglas Adams, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
