First and Last

To repeat something is not so difficult. If you repeat it, it will be a part of you, and this is, you know, how we observe our way. Here at Tassajara you do not pass big pickle dish. You divide mine and it's put it in front of you. But if you pass in one big dish starting with me, I shall always eat the worst part [laughs], and in the monastery, the last one will eat the best part. -------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-12-06-B as found on shunryusuzuki.com.
