Quotes: D.T. Suzuki

"Emptiness which is conceptually liable to be mistaken for sheer nothingness is in fact the reservoir of infinite possibilities." –– Daisetsu Teitaro Suzuki (1870-1966), Japanese author whose books and lectures on Zen Buddhism had a profound influence on John Cage and many of his contemporaries.

* Recently I heard about The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo and I'm itching to read this book when it is rereleased in paperback. Maybe an emptier space offers infinite possibilities. My studio seems to suggest the opposite.
