Ancient wisdom
Elsewhere, Miss Meng defined agnosticism as "A vogue (sic) term atheists currently use to try and justify and rationalize there (sic) absurd claims and beliefs." Some of our recent theists have spouted pearls almost as good.

How profound, I thought. What other bits of ancient Eastern wisdom are we missing? Therefore, I started this thread with some wise sayings I picked up here and there. I'll lead off with:

Confucius say, mind is like parachute. Works best when open.

Buddha say, Man entering airport stile sideways, going to Bangkok.

Anyone know any others?

Oldie but always a fave of mine:

Confucius say, "He who stands on toilet is high on pot".

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

In homage to Miss Meng's profound wisdom, I offer up another gem:

President Bush say, "Well, I think if you say you're going to do something and don't do it, that's trustworthiness."—CNN online chat, Aug. 30, 2000
