"You have to work on getting higher. It’s like the big condors that fly in the thermals. The Universe is going to come along and bang you around a little bit and bring you down once in a while, so you just look around for good vibes and rise in them. When you blunder out of the good vibes into the bad vibes, try to be graceful about it until you find a place where you can rise a little. But if you keep wanting to get higher and you keep wanting to get higher… There’s a thing about that, invented by Suzuki-roshi, which is the theory of minimum desire. And he says you should desire desirelessness until the desire for desirelessness becomes a desire, and then you better level off about there. Desiring altitude is what makes the come-downs on the other side seem so heavy. Say, “I do not seek after enlightenment; neither do I linger in a place where no enlightenment exists.”"

"When I am with you, there is nowhere else I’d rather be. And I am a person who always wants to be somewhere else."

Still haven’t found someone who instills this feeling in me.

"Personally I like going places where I don’t speak the language, don’t know anybody, don’t know my way around and don’t have any delusions that I’m in control. Disoriented, even frightened, I feel alive, awake in ways I never am at home."
