Wir können sogar protestieren, ohne enthauptet zu werden
- nur nützt unser Protest eben nichts,
im Gegenteil, unser Protest attestiert den Machthabern bekanntlich, dass sie tolerant sind.
Max Frisch

ENG: We even can protest without being decapitated -only that our protest doesn't help, contrary even, as is generally known our protest attests the potentates that they're tolerant.
Ho! All the possible appearances and existences of samsara and nirvana have the same source, yet two paths and two results arise as the magical display of awareness and unawareness.

I found a quote in German, cannot get hands at an english translation

by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Zeit ist der Beobachter, der den Abstand zwischen sich und den Bäumen, zwischen sich und dem was ist, herstellt.
Time is the Observer that creates the distance between yourself and the trees and between yourself and what is. or
Time is the Witness that creates the distance between yourself and the trees and between yourself and what is.

Jiddhu Krishnamurti used both observer and witness (lowercase).

AH! This quote is found here.

Time is the observer who makes the distance between himself and the trees, between himself and what is.
Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche

To paraphrase Garrison Keillor, sometimes good fortune consists not of getting what you want but getting what you need, and having the good sense to realize that this is what you would have wanted at the outset if you had known more about yourself.
Nice one.
Thanks PeterC :thumbsup:

This is from DW. I forget who first posted it.

Even if you had died the 3 Jewels would still have protected you.
Although I've learned much here at DW, that one posting alone has made my participation worthwhile.

Thanks to whoever first shared it. :anjali:
I support Mingyur R and HHDL in their positions against Lama abuse.
