I have a Zen-a-day calendar again this year and will regal you with my favorite quotes per month.
My top favorite, which I would do well to remember, is a Zen saying:
Open your mouth and you’re wrong.
From da Vinci:
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
Seriousness is the only refuge of the shallow.
The more talking and thinking, the farther from the truth.
And finally, the last word goes to Thomas Wolfe:
Which of us is not forever a stranger and alone.
