"So I really learned that you have to have a major total idea or it's nothing, you know; it's just an assembly. What most people do is an assembly of cliches or facades or what-have-you ..." - John Lautner
I am heading out of town for a couple of weeks to retreat with a water fast. Finding encouragement in this quote:
“The one who has conquered himself is a far greater hero than he who has defeated a thousand times a thousand men.”
― Gautama Buddha, The Dhammapada: The Sayings of the Buddha
Looking forward to the other side of this journey - I know from past experience that the renewal will be worth it.
