  255. 255. “However, if you are on a moral crusade, youwill destroy everything in your wake. And whocan deny that the history of the 20th centurybears out this view, with Nazi and Communistideologies causing such havoc? After all, Hitlerwas an idealist, too. So Confucius — who wasnot, admittedly, part of the Zen tradition,though he influenced it — puts the greatestvalue not on absolute good, but on ‘human-heartedness’, or jen. If you are human-hearted,you are unlikely to want to do any great ill, evenwithout a great moral vision to guide you.”TIM LOTT
  256. 256. “The fundamental nature of the world is notsomething you can get too precise about. Thebasis of one’s life and thought must alwaysremain undefined. Some ideas — such as theTao, the ‘way of things’ — come to us, we can’tjust go out and get them. They are mysteriousand unknown.This kind of thinking is anathema to the modernscientist who thinks that everything can beknown and finally will be known. But [Alan]Watts argued, it is impossible to appreciate theuniverse unless you know when to stopinvestigating. Truth is not to be found bypicking everything to pieces like a spoilt child.”TIM LOTT

  269. 269. “What I think is that a good life isone hero journey after another. Overand over again, you are called to therealm of adventure, you are called tonew horizons.
