Feel free to add to some philosophy you guys remember, aquired, or ponder on.

Do you guys agree with this saying?

"He who questions his teachings, only learns to ask questions"


Here's a story to go along with it:

"reporter goes to a monk and asks him to teach him about zen. the monk asks him to sit down for tea. the monk begins telling koans and stories, but he is interrupted constantly by the reporter. 'i heard it happened this way.' ' why did he do that?' 'i think it's because of this.' 'i don't think it happened that way.' the monk then began pouring tea, but he didn't stop. The tea began spilling into the floor and the reporter exclaimed 'STOP IT, you're spilling it!' 'How can I fill your cup, if it is already full?'"


If you guys need cliffnotes, the sentence above the story is basically it.

Discuss... hopefully we have some bright nters up in this piece.

It had long since come to my attention...
that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them.

They went out and happened to things!
