Zen Pencils

Zen Pencils has been around for only a few months, but it has quickly become one of my favourite webcomics. Gavin Aung Than creates comic strips based on “inspirational quotes from famous people” that enhance the emotional and intellectual impact of the quotes.

Among my favourites are Neil deGrasse Tyson’s “The most astounding fact..”, Neil Gaiman’s “Make good art.”, Kurt Vonnegut’s “The life of art…”, Bruce Lee’s “Be water, my friend.”, Frank Herbert’s “Litany Against Fear”, and Albert Einstein’s “Everybody is a genius.”

The Buddha quote in this post is from the Zen Pencils strip BUDDHA: Pay it forward. It shares the sentiment of my all time favourite quote, Spider Robinson’s “Shared pain is lessened; shared joy, increased.”
