"There is an un-known, unsaid harmony between individuals who sit silently together, forming bonds of memory and friendship more unbroken than that which can be forged in the fires of speech. So much more life can be shared, as well as understanding, when we rest comfortably in our true natures, without any of the ego-stuff needed when we talk with others about our places in the World. The tea space can be a clear and inviting pool in which we can shed the scales of our outer lives and egos and swim silently and unpretentiously, free like so many koi fish. It is a place where we meet as equals... and through drinking tea and sharing some calm joy find the more beautiful parts of one another － the inner self, our "Buddha-nature", the Tao. Tea contains within it the state of No-mind; it doesn't discriminate or classify － it just is."
~ The Way of Tea, Wu De
