Shoushan Xingnian [W-G: Shou-shan Sheng-nien / J: Shuzan Shonen]



                When a man asked to be taken on as a student, Shoushan Xingnian told him. “I don’t have time for that type of thing.”
                The supplicant asked, “How can one who is a master behave like this?”
                “I said I haven’t any time. If you wish to practice, practice!”

[Shoushan Xingnian – Zen Masters of China: 250-51]
