More on Equanimity

Since the posting below on "Experiencing Equanimity," I came across the following related quotes:

"Equanimity has the capacity to embrace extremes without getting thrown off balance. Equanimity takes interest in whatever is occurring simply because it is occurring. Equanimity does not include indifference, boredom, coldness, or hesitation. It is an expression of calm, radiant balance that takes whatever comes in stride." - Shaila Catherine, Daily Dharma Quote (2/9/11) from her Tricycle Magazine article "Equanimity in Every Bite"

"Few people are capable of expressing with equanimity opinions which differ from the prejudices of their social environment. Most people are even incapable of forming such opinions." Albert Einstein
