Nan Shin

  • ... we all hope for a — must I say the word — recipe, we all believe, however much we know we shouldn't, that maybe somebody's got that recipe and can show us how not to be sick, suffer and die.

  • There is nothing inevitable. The actions of the past operate at every instant and so, at every instant, does freedom.

Nan Shin, U.S. zen nun

(1935)
