    " I wore out my first copy rereading this over the years, so I bought a second copy to replace it. This collection of Zen and Pre-Zen aphorisms is enlightening and entertaining. "

    " VERY disappointing. Violently abusive masters hypocritically venerated as great teachers! Put it down when one committed murder. "

    " "It has been said that if you have Zen in your life, you have no fear, no doubt, no unnecessary craving, no extreme emotion. Neither illiberal attitudes nor egotistical actions trouble you. You serve humanity humbly, fulfilling your presence in this world with loving-kindness and observing your passing as a petal falling from a flower." (p. 18 of the 1970 edition). "

    " I have a small pocket version of this text. It is one of the few books that I read over and over again. I love the simple wisdom and the stories that make life so much more clear. I love the sayings that don't make any sense or those that do but only if I don't concentrate very hard. "
