THREE QUOTES ON MEDITATION

“Reading makes a full man, meditation a profound man, discourse a clear man.”
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)

“Meditation here may think down hours to moments. Here the heart may give a useful lesson to the head and learning wiser grow without his books.” – William Cowper (English Poet 1731-1800)

“What is this true meditation? It is to make everything: coughing, swallowing, waving the arms, motion, stillness, words, action, the evil and the good, prosperity and shame, gain and loss, right and wrong, into one single koan” – Hakuin – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hakuin
