Dogen

‘For a pine by the blue mountain torrent, and for a crane in its cold nest, the nature of sadness is calm and peaceful, and its entire body is eminent. The deep valley stream embraces the bright moonlight; the broad mountains cherish the colorfully glowing clouds. Each single spot is distinct; the ten directions are clear and open. At this very time, do you understand this point or not?’ (Extensive Record, discourse 468)
