From Mahatma Gandhi, political and spiritual leader

When I don't understand something, I reach up and hold God's hand. And we walk together in silence.

If I had the courage, I could ask him where I put my car keys. But I don't. I mean, He's GOD!

From the Dalai Lama.

Open-minded people tend to be interested in Buddhism because Buddha urged people to investigate things -- he didn't just command them to believe.

Kind of like snipe hunting, only quieter.

Paying it Forward

From Anne Morrow Lindbergh, writer (1906-2001)

But probably won't.
