"There are bad ways to win— and good ways to lose. What’s interesting and troubling is that it’s not always clear which is which. A flipped coin doesn’t always land heads or tails. Sometimes it may never land at all…"

Alle kennis of studie is, vergeleken met de diepte van het ervaren, als een druppel water die in zee valt.
All knowledge or study is compared with the depth of the experienced, as a drop of water falling into the sea.

TWO MONKS

Two monks were making a pilgrimage to venerate the relics of a great Saint. During the course of their journey, they came to a river where they met a beautiful young woman — an apparently worldly creature, dressed in expensive finery and with her hair done up in the latest fashion. She was afraid of the current and afraid of ruining her lovely clothing, so asked the brothers if they might carry her across the river.
The younger and more exacting of the brothers was offended at the very idea and turned away with an attitude of disgust. The older brother didn’t hesitate, and quickly picked the woman up on his shoulders, carried her across the river, and set her down on the other side. She thanked him and went on her way, and the brother waded back through the waters.
The monks resumed their walk, the older one in perfect equanimity and enjoying the beautiful countryside, while the younger one grew more and more brooding and distracted, so much so that he could keep his silence no longer and suddenly burst out, “Brother, we are taught to avoid contact with women, and there you were, not just touching a woman, but carrying her on your shoulders!”
The older monk looked at the younger with a loving, pitiful smile and said, “Brother, I set her down on the other side of the river; you are still carrying her.”

Twee monniken 
Twee monniken die op reis waren, kwamen bij een rivier aan. Daar was een vrouw die wilde oversteken. Omdat ze bang was voor de stroming in de rivier vroeg ze of de monniken haar naar de overkant wilden helpen. De jongste monnik aarzelde. De oudste zette haar op zijn schouders, waadde door de rivier en zette haar neer op de oever aan de overkant van de rivier. De vrouw bedankte hem en vertrok. De monniken vervolgden hun reis. De oudste stapte rustig door en genoot van het mooie landschap. De jongste was in zichzelf gekeerd en broedde op iets. Na twee uur te hebben gelopen, verbrak de jongste het zwijgen en zei wat hem dwars zat: “Broeder, wij hebben geleerd dat we contact met vrouwen moeten vermijden, maar jij pakte haar op je schouders en droeg haar!”
“Broeder”, antwoordde de oudste monnik, “Ik heb haar neergezet aan de overkant, terwijl jij haar nog steeds bij je draagt.”
