“Observe What’s Vivid”

“There is a story in the Jewish tradition about a student going to see a great rabbi, not principally to study Torah or Talmud, but to watch how the rabbi ties his shoes.”–Eboo Patel

“I realized that it is by watching the Master, his way of living and listening, that you find the things that are useful for your own work. It’s not by studying the scriptures hours and hours with explanations of a professor that you find those things.”–Nhat Hanh, The Raft Is Not the Shore

Title is the seventh line in Allen Ginsberg’s poem, Cosmopolitan Greetings.”
