The most fundamental aggression to ourselves,
the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves,
is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently.

Pema Chodron

Be a Fool

He who asks a question,
is a fool for a minute.

Hoe who does not,
remains a fool forever

Kodo Sawaki
