    “We are living in a culture entirely hypnotized by the illusion of time, in which the so-called present moment is felt as nothing but an infintesimal hairline between an all-powerfully causative past and an absorbingly important future. We have no present. Our consciousness is almost completely preoccupied with memory and expectation. We do not realize that there never was, is, nor will be any other experience than present experience. We are therefore out of touch with reality. We confuse the world as talked about, described, and measured with the world which actually is. We are sick with a fascination for the useful tools of names and numbers, of symbols, signs, conceptions and ideas.” -- Alan Watts

    He taught me a lot. He was a friend and teacher of mine for 35+ years. He is no one famous. He is no one you can look up. He has been dead for 21 years, my quoting him is just my way of remembering and honoring him. Sorry if that does not fit your criteria of quotable people. I would suggest just letting his quotes stand or fall at face value.

    Take your pick: Seems to be several thousand of them. Here are a few. No Clampett types though. But, then again the Dao Bums site seems to be gravitating to stereotypical thinking more and more instead of Tao.
