Sheet of Paper

There is limit in our effort, and there is limit in our power to attain something. Whether you become famous or not, the difference may be by a sheet of paper. If you are strong-- stronger than the other a little bit, you know, you will become famous. That's all. If you can do it little bit ahead of people, you will be successful. To be involved in that kind of competition is to sacrifice yourself. And it is silly, you know, to be involved in this kind of life.   --------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-12-05-B as found on Edited by DC - Many Shunryu Suzuki lecture ex/cerpts on - from thee links to much more. Going slowly through Suzuki transcripts featuring whatever is next that seems okay.
