Nothing wrong with quotes (was: Re: [Buddhism_101] Re: QUOTES V DISCUSION)
Thanks Jody and all . I post quotes for a variety of reasons. The last quote was in reply to the person who asked for recommendations for their friend to read who was new to Buddhism. What better [IMHO] than stories from Lord Buddha with commentary by HH DalaiLama. The Jataka tales cover many points of Buddhisttheory in a way a child or uneducated person can understand as easily as a scholar. I hope the person asking understood the quote.
Here is anoter quote which summarizes my general theory of posting quotes from masters instead of my 2 cents. [smile]
"Better than a meaningless story of a thousand words
is a single word of deep meaning which, when heard, produces peace. "
-The Buddha, from the Dhammapada
Love and clear light,
