    I like the photo caption :)

    ‘All’ is a superlative.
    Which is why, Buddha would have been just another charlatan, had he existed.

    And – yet – we are so much more than our ‘thoughts’!! Wonderful quote!

  6. Ginnie says:

    Kinda like, “I think, therefore I am?!”

  7. C, you’re more Buddhist than me! ;)
    Shame on me!

    I’m not into Buddha but with the caption this seagull should be a bag of chips ;-)
    Lovely photo & character study of it.

      The quote isn’t an exclusively Buddhist thought. All the major religions and philosophers have the same belief although they express it in different ways.
