Matsuo Basho Quotes





Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the men of old; seek what they sought.
[Progress]
 

Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the wise. Seek what they sought.
 

Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.
 

Seek not to follow in the footsteps of men of old; seek what they sought.
 

The moon is brighter since the barn burned.
 

The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers.
 

There is nothing you can see that is not a flower; there is nothing you can think that is not the moon.
