according to Buddha
As irrigators lead water where they want, as archers make their arrows straight, as carpenters carve wood, the wise shape their minds.
the water is pushing
the river is wishing
:-) you always check the details…thanks Han!
I like this very, very much — I always admire the nuanced way you match images to the inspiring words. (And in this case, I particularly like the 7th photo in the list — strong curve, against the horizontal just above.) There’s another water quote and image I think you’d like: the quote is an adaptation from Plato and says, “The river I step in is not the river I stand in” and it’s part of a fine bit of public sculpture on Queen St. East nr Broadview, here in Toronto. I mentioned it once myself, but this is a better, fuller presentation: http://www.rbebout.com/queen/2pdon.htm
thanks so much icelandpenny! love the quote too…:-)
