Mark Twain

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."

Basho Haiku

Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the wise. Instead, seek what they sought. — Basho

I hear the unblown flute, In the deep summer shadows, Of the Temple of Suma. — Basho

Even in Kyoto – / Hearing the cuckoo’s cry / I long for Kyoto. — Basho

Ah, tranquillity! / Penetrating the very rock, / a cicada’s voice. — Basho
