The Key Idea That Inspired Phil: "If you want to obtain perfect calmness...you should not be bothered by the various images you find in your mind. Let them come, and let them go. Then they will be under control. " — Shunryu Suzuki

The Real-Life Lesson for All of Us: "You need to have a lot of [mental] space to move. If you get obsessed with something, you'll become focused on it unless you understand that, in letting it go, you let it go through. Like a cloud passing through the sky." — Phil Jackson
