  • If there is a central theme to what I called "a peaceful warrior's approach to living," and to The Four Purposes of Life, it is that there may be innumerable techniques or methods one can learn (from the Eastern spiritual cultures and from the Western psychological tradition), but that above and beyond all these technologies waits the school of everyday life.

    Dan Millman (2010). “Body Mind Mastery: Training for Sport and Life”, p.165, New World Library

    Dan Millman (2010). “Living on Purpose: Straight Answers to Universal Questions”, p.75, New World Library
  • Your greatest fear is death and your deepest craving is survival. You want Forever, you desire Eternity. In your deluded belief that you are this 'mind' or 'spirit' or 'soul', you find the escape clause in your contract with mortality. Perhaps as 'mind' you can wing free of the body when it dies, hmm?

    Dan Millman (2010). “Body Mind Mastery: Training for Sport and Life”, p.53, New World Library
  • Peaceful warriors have the patience to wait until the mud settles and the water clears. They remain unmoving until the right time, so the right action arises by itself. They do not seek fulfillment, but wait with open arms to welcome all things.

    Dan Millman (1992). “No Ordinary Moments: A Peaceful Warrior's Guide to Daily Life”, p.4, H J Kramer

Finally I saw through the clouds I saw that I had never learned how to enjoy life, only how to achieve. All my life i had been busy seeking happiness, but never finding it or sustaining it.
