Reading about enlightenment

[image: Designed by Dutch firm Studiomeiboom, The Enlightenment illuminates your shelf rather your soul. Made from plexiglass and lit by an energy-saving bulb, the lamp plugs into an outlet with a standard cord.]

from Chan Master Sheng Yen, Shattering the Great Doubt -
[B]odhisattvas and lineage masters appear in the world, using countless ways to expound the doctrine, using all sorts of expedient means. What the lineage masters say is not actually Dharma, since the Dharma itself is not expressible in words; they are only expediencies to help people.
The Tao te Ching -
The Tao that can be spoken of is not the eternal Tao.

W. B. Yeats -
Like a long-legged fly upon the stream
Her mind moves upon silence.
