    Yes, been surfing again ... here are some Zen quotes -

    "To accept some idea of truth without experiencing it is like a painting of a cake on paper which you cannot eat."

    ~ Suzuki Roshi

    "What is important is not the right doctrine but the attainment of the true experience. It is giving up believing in belief."

    ~ Alan Keightley

    "The Buddha talked about saving all beings from delusion, not converting them to a new religion."

    ~ Buddhism Now

    "Each step along the Buddha’s path to happiness requires practising mindfulness until it becomes part of your daily life."

    ~ Henepola Gunaratana
