Ian MacKaye

I just ran across this quote from one of my favorite musicians and Washington D.C. native Ian MacKaye:

"The first time I played a bass, I was successful. Success is not a goal. Success is in the doing. Always."

I think that describes Shikantaza pretty well( even though it is beyond success and failure).


  1. Hahhaa, great! Thanks, man! And yes, one of my fav musicians too!

  2. Yes. But Ian didn't play any sports. Perhaps more quotes from athletes, please. I luv to watch sports.
