Who Are You?


“There is nothing else than now. There is neither yesterday, certainly, nor is there any tomorrow. How old must you be before you know that?“

“Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.”

Quotes by Ernest Hemingway

skull art -death quote

“Death is the only wise advisor that we have. Whenever you feel that everything is going wrong and you’re about to be annihilated, turn to your death and ask if that is so. Your death will tell you that you’re wrong; that nothing really matters outside its touch. Your death will tell you, ‘I haven’t touched you yet.”

“Forget the self and you will fear nothing, in whatever level or awareness you find yourself to be.”

Quotes by Carlos Castaneda


“Be anchored in fearlessness. What is worldly life but fear?“

“How many lives are frittered away, age after age, in endless coming and going. Find out who you are!”

A Cloud Never Dies



“At first, it seemed like a passing cloud, but after several hours I began to feel my body turning to smoke and floating away, I became a faint wisp of a cloud. I had always thought of myself as a solid entity, and suddenly I saw that I am not solid at all. I saw that the entity I had taken to be me was really a fabrication. My true nature, I realized, was much more real, both uglier and more beautiful than I could ever have imagined.”

Quote from Fragrant Palm Leaves, Thich Nhat Hanh’s journals from the 1960s​.

Thich Nhat Hanh transitioned on January 22, 2022.
