Buddhist thoughts

Some nice items from my "Buddhist Thought of the Day" feed

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without. - Buddha

It is only with total humility, and in absolute stillness of mind that we can know what indeed we are. - "The Tenth Man" by Wei Wu Wei

We say, "In calmness there should be activity; in activity there should be calmness." Actually, they are the same thing; to say "calmness" or to say "activity" is just to express different interpretations of one fact. There is harmony in our activity, and where there is harmony there is calmness. - D. T. Suzuki

Puzzles: Tues May 22

Jumble = 1:13 (What the late arriving guest gave the night clerk)
Word Sleuth = 1:49!!! (Most Common U.S. Place Names)
NEA Crossword = 2:31 (5-21-07)
NY Times Crossword = fast (No. 0410)
Sudoku = 10:10 (EASY)

A lightning-quick set of puzzles, including what might be a personal record on Word Sleuth. I forgot to start the timer on NY Times Crossword, but it had to be somewhere around 4 minutes. That would make sub-10 minutes for the first four and just about 20 minutes for the whole batch. Like I said, lightning-quick!
