Once the Buddha was walking through a village when he encountered an angry man who got in his face and began yelling at him, saying things like “You have no right to be teaching others, you’re just a big fake and just as confused as everyone else!”

Despite this angry outburst, the Buddha maintained his Buddhacool and waited for the guy to simmer down before he asked, “If you offer a gift for someone and they don’t accept it, to whom does it then belong?”

Confused, the man replied, “I suppose it belongs to me since I’m the one who owned the gift in the first place.”

The Buddha then said, “In much the same way, I don’t accept this gift from you. I don’t accept any of the insults or accusations you’re throwing my way. So they belong to you and you alone, and no one else.”

“It is often to the wary that the events in life are unexpected. Looser types—people who are not busy weighing and measuring every little thing—are used to accidents, coincidences, chance, things getting out of hand, things sneaking up on them. They are the happy children of life, to whom life happens for better or worse."
- Laurie Colwin, “A Mythological Subject,” in The  Lone Pilgrim

“If you look at a thing, the very fact of your looking changes it…if you think about yourself, that very fact changes you."

One evening, an elderly Cherokee brave told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said: 

- My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all.  One is evil. it is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is good.  It is joy, peace love, hope serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity,
truth, compassion and faith.

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather:

- Which wolf wins?

The old Cherokee simply replied:

- The one that you feed
