Sue Soal sent us this wonderful quotation from Stephen Levine’s A Year to Live, where he cites Zen master Suzuki Roshi:

If you put a wild horse in a small stall it can go mad and kick out all the slats,
but if you lead this same stallion to an open meadow and let him go, he will run
about for a while then settle down, roll in the grass, and go to sleep. Just so with
the wild rumours that echo back and forth in the tiny cortex and turn the body to
shattered stone.
