Best Quotes by Matsuo Basho (Top 4)

  1. Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the wise. Seek what they sought.
  2. Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.
  3. There is nothing you can see that is not a flower; there is nothing you can think that is not the moon.
  4. Sabi is the color of haikai. It is different from tranquility. For example, if an old man dresses up in armor and helmet and goes to the battlefield, or in colorful brocade kimono, attending (his lord) at a banquet, [sabi] is like this old figure.
