Inspiring quotes I encountered today…both shared in the book The Wisdom of Yoga by Stephen Cope.
“Seek not to follow in the footsteps of the elders. Rather, seek what they sought” (Zen poet Matsuo Basho)
“You think in your idle hours that there is literature, history, science behind you so accumulated as to exhaust thought and prescribe your own future. In your sane hour, you shall see that not a line has yet been written; that for all the poetry that is in the world your first sensation on entering a wood or standing on the shore of a lake has not been charted yet. It remains for you; so does all thought, all objects, all life remain unwritten still” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
