"I’m not thick-skinned at all, and of course I’m hurt by people attacking me as a person."
"To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him."

Alan Watts (via insanity-and-vanity)
