A black and white world
Would be so much easier
But it just ain’t so.
After pondering the Whole
Manage a balance.
“Tao is obscured by our inadequate understanding, and words are obscured by flowery expressions.”
– Chuang Tzu. (Trans. Lin Yutang)
“The purest expression of fiction is the attempt to create a world, not represent it; thus the creation ought to be more significant than the representation.”
– John Hawkes.

I was tagged by willowdot21 to take part in today’s challenge.
So here’s how it works:-
1. Thank the selector: “Thank you, willowdot. 🙂
2. Post two quotes for the challenge of the day, which today is “expression”. See above.
3. Select three fellow posters to take part in this challenge.
The three lucky folk are listed below. There is no obligation though; only those who would like to play need do so. 🙂
DANGLY BITS AND TRAPS
From a Zen
Viewpoint – or Tao
Relax back into Now
Return – Release
Thought destroys Peace
All is One
With no one
Real to worry
To fret or hurry
From here to there
Be more than Aware
Ending up being less
Breathe in – Breathe out
No mind what it’s all about
THE PERSONAL REVOLUTION
From just I just I
To We then back again to
An unmanaged “I”
There’s Left Wing and there’s Right Wing
Then there’s the bird free of wings
NOTHING TO SNEEZE AT
My wife complained one day
At my sneezing with such gusto
I explained to her that it sprang
From my realisation that a sneeze
Is the respiratory system equivalent
Of an orgasm and therefore it is best
To simply just let go and fully enjoy it
She said I must be the only person who
Could manage to complicate a sneeze
