"You have to work on getting higher. It’s like the big condors that fly in the thermals. The Universe is going to come along and bang you around a little bit and bring you down once in a while, so you just look around for good vibes and rise in them. When you blunder out of the good vibes into the bad vibes, try to be graceful about it until you find a place where you can rise a little. But if you keep wanting to get higher and you keep wanting to get higher… There’s a thing about that, invented by Suzuki-roshi, which is the theory of minimum desire. And he says you should desire desirelessness until the desire for desirelessness becomes a desire, and then you better level off about there. Desiring altitude is what makes the come-downs on the other side seem so heavy. Say, “I do not seek after enlightenment; neither do I linger in a place where no enlightenment exists.”"

"One day you’re going to see her holding hands with someone who took your chance. She won’t even notice you because she’s too busy laughing with the stupid jokes he makes. And it will burn your heart seeing that beautiful smile on her face and realizing that you’re not the reason anymore. And then it will finally hit you: it was her, it was always her."
