Words

The tongue like a sharp knife…

Kills without drawing blood.


Gautama Buddha

Forgotten words

The purpose of a fishtrap is to catch fish,
and when the fish are caught, the trap is forgotten.

The purpose of a rabbit snare is to catch rabbits.
When the rabbits are caught, the snare is forgotten.

The purpose of words is to convey ideas.
When the ideas are grasped, the words are forgotten.

Where can I find a man who has forgotten words?
He is the one I would like to talk to.


Chuang Tsu

Words

All words and sayings gently turn,
returning to the self.


Bassui Tokushō

Communication

Better than a thousand hollow words,
is one word that brings peace


Gautama Buddha

Talking

Do not speak – unless it improves on silence.
