  • I am a miser of my memories of you
And will not spend them.

  • The core and the surface
    Are essentially the same
    Words making them seem different
    Only to express appearance.
    If name be needed, wonder names them both:
    From wonder into wonder existence opens.
  • A man who knows how little he knows is well, a man who knows how much he knows is sick.
    • The Way of Life, According to Laotzu, 1944.
