ABOUT ME

All these things are difficult to form into words.
If a person gives a name to something and then holds fast to that name, he will miss the real meaning. Yet if no name is given, then he floats about in empty space and does not attain awareness.
Chozan Shissai - Master Swordsman, Japan 1728

Quotes:

''In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don't try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present.'' ~Tao Te Ching

''Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power. If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich.'' ~Tao Te Ching

¨An inch of time is an inch of gold but you can't buy that inch of time with an inch of gold.¨

¨Call someone your lord and he/she'll sell you in the slave market.¨

¨A cat in gloves catches no mice¨ ''Black cat or white cat: If it can catch mice, it's a good cat.''

¨Hunger drives the wolf out of the wood¨

''I am a fulltime Nomade. My settledown place will be NewGrave.'' ~Me.

''I'd rather die for speaking out, than to live and be silent.'' ~Me.

My Advice:
¨Do not buy either the moon or the news, for in the end they will both come out.

¨Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime¨

¨As long as you liver, keep learning how to live ¨

¨Do not conquer the world with force, for force only causes resistance. Thorns spring up when an army passes. Years of misery follow a great victory. Do only what needs to be done without using violence.¨ ~IRAQ

PHILOSOPHY

Rien n'est sure dans la vie a part de la mort.
Todo es possible y nada es securo
יִרְאַת יְהוָה, רֵאשִׁית דָּעַת; חָכְמָה וּמוּסָר, אֱוִילִים בָּזוּ.

百世修来同船渡,千载修得共枕眠

路遥知马力,日久见人心
رِحْلِة الأَلْف مِيل تَبْدَأ بِخَطْوَة

Man with one chopstick go hungry

At the narrow passage there is no brother and no friend.

A sense of humor is the pole that adds balance to our steps as we walk the tightrope of life.

War does not determine who is right, war determine who is left.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Don't walk behind me I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend!
*******************************************************
"Rise up this morning,
Smiled with the rising sun
Three little birds pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs of melodies pure and true
Sayin', "This is my message to you-u-u."

"Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause ev'ry little thing gonna be al-right."

*Make new friends and keep the old.One is silver, the other is gold*

Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today!!! :)

"Everybody knows that it's impossible to do so, as it's impossible to do so. And then comes the one who doesn't know it's impossible to do so, and he does so."

"I was young, she was young,
We were together like the birds in the sky,
Watching stars, catching time,
All in hands haven’t thaught for all the life,
There’s a pain caused by run away,
I never did confess it to world,
And now I would like to have it all around ,
Love back around me,

I pray for love,
Every day and every night,
I pray for love,
And I need you by myside

Passing years, running days,
And all I have is memories flowning,
I try to love, try to forget,
I try to hide, nothing works for my loneliness,
Now i wanna pain caused by run away,
And now i want to confess it to world,
Now i would like to have it all around,
Love back around me

I pray for love,
Every day and every night,
I pray for love,
And I need you by myside" ;)

All depends..

Muy cerca de mi ocaso yo te bendigo, vida,

porque nunca me diste esperanza fallida,

ni trabajos injustos, ni pena inmerecida.

Porque veo al final de mi rudo camino,

que yo fui el arquitecto de mi propio destino;

que si extraje la miel o la hiel de las cosas,

fue porque en ellas puse hiel o mieles sabrosas,

cuando plante rosales; coseche siempre rosas.

...Cierto; a mis

One Amazing Thing I've Done

A wise man associating with the vicious becomes an idiot; a dog traveling with good men becomes a rational being.

The one-eyed person is a beauty in the country of the blind.

Teach, Learn, Share

A blog I like: http://koalino.blogspot.com/

You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives. ~Clay P. Bedford

I am learning all the time. The tombstone will be my diploma. ~Eartha Kitt

It's what you learn after you know it all that counts. ~Attributed to Harry S. Truman

A single conversation with a wise man is better than ten years of study. ~Chinese Proverb

In the spider-web of facts, many a truth is strangled. ~Paul Eldridge

Give me a fruitful error any time, full of seeds, bursting with its own corrections. You can keep your sterile truth for yourself. ~Vilfredo Pareto

When the student is ready, the master appears. ~Buddhist Proverb

It is important that students bring a certain ragamuffin, barefoot irreverence to their studies; they are not here to worship what is known, but to question it. ~Jacob Bronowski

Education consists mainly of what we have unlearned. ~Mark Twain

Man's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

You learn something every day if you pay attention. ~Ray LeBlond

The most useful piece of learning for the uses of life is to unlearn what is untrue. ~Antisthenes

Some people will never learn anything, for this reason, because they understand everything too soon. ~Alexander Pope

Sit down before fact as a little child, be prepared to give up every conceived notion, follow humbly wherever and whatever abysses nature leads, or you will learn nothing. ~Thomas Huxley

Children have to be educated, but they have also to be left to educate themselves. ~Abbé Dimnet, Art of Thinking, 1928

I don't think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday. ~Abraham Lincoln

The ink of the scholar is more sacred than the blood of the martyr. ~Mohammed

Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere. ~Chinese Proverb

All the world is a laboratory to the inquiring mind. ~Martin H. Fischer

I am always ready to learn although I do not always like being taught. ~Winston Churchill

The purpose of learning is growth, and our minds, unlike our bodies, can continue growing as we continue to live. ~Mortimer Adler

There are many things which we can afford to forget which it is yet well to learn. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

I am defeated, and know it, if I meet any human being from whom I find myself unable to learn anything. ~George Herbert Palmer

Beware of the man who works hard to learn something, learns it, and finds himself no wiser than before. ~Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

I find four great classes of students: The dumb who stay dumb. The dumb who become wise. The wise who go dumb. The wise who remain wise. ~Martin H. Fischer

No matter how one may think himself accomplished, when he sets out to learn a new language, science, or the bicycle, he has entered a new realm as truly as if he were a child newly born into the world. ~Frances Willard, How I Learned to Ride the Bicycle

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. ~Henry Ford

It is not hard to learn more. What is hard is to unlearn when you discover yourself wrong. ~Martin H. Fischer

If the past cannot teach the present and the father cannot teach the son, then history need not have bothered to go on, and the world has wasted a great deal of time. ~Russell Hoban

You have learned something. That always feels at first as if you had lost something. ~H.G. Wells

I have never in my life learned anything from any man who agreed with me. ~Dudley Field Malone

Every act of conscious learning requires the willingness to suffer an injury to one's self-esteem. That is why young children, before they are aware of their own self-importance, learn so easily. ~Thomas Szasz

I am what the librarians have made me with a little assistance from a professor of Greek and a few poets. ~Bernard Keble Sandwell

Learn as much as you can while you are young, since life becomes too busy later. ~Dana Stewart Scott

His studies were pursued but never effectually overtaken. ~H.G. Wells

The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn. ~Alvin Toffler

Learning without thought is labor lost. ~Confucius

The pupil can only educate himself. Teachers are the custodians of apparatus upon which he himself must turn and twist to acquire the excellencies that distinguish the better from the poorer of God's vessels. ~Martin H. Fischer

The best of my education has come from the public library... my tuition fee is a bus fare and once in a while, five cents a day for an overdue book. You don't need to know very much to start with, if you know the way to the public library. ~Lesley Conger

The man who is too old to learn was probably always too old to learn. ~Henry S. Haskins

We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself. ~Lloyd Alexander

You don't understand anything until you learn it more than one way. ~Marvin Minsky

The important thing is not so much that every child should be taught, as that every child should be given the wish to learn. ~John Lubbock

Learning is like rowing upstream: not to advance is to drop back. ~Chinese Proverb

People learn something every day, and a lot of times it's that what they learned the day before was wrong. ~Bill Vaughan

A Jade stone is useless before it is processed; a man is good-for-nothing until he is educated.
