All of us are apprenticed to the same teacher—reality. It is as hard to get the children herded into the car pool and down the road to the bus as it is to chant sutras in the Buddha-hall on a cold morning. One is not better than the other; each can be quite boring; and they both have the virtuous quality of repetition. Repetition and its good results make the very activities of our life into the path. -- Gary Snyder (1930 - ), Zen teacher, poet, essayist, and activist
