  • Be patient and achieve all things … Be impatient and achieve all things faster.
  • To Find the Buddha, look within. Deep inside you are ten thousand flowers. Each flower blossoms ten thousand times. Each blossom has ten thousand petals … You might want to see a specialist.
  • To practice Zen and the art of Jewish motorcycle maintenance, do the following … Get rid of the motorcycle. What were you thinking?
