The first rule of flying ~ Firefly, Serenity & Love | God Beauty Perfection Love :: Synonyms
The first rule of flying ~ From "Serenity" :: Know what the first rule of flying is? Love. You can know all the math in the ‘verse but take a boat in the air that you don’t love?

The trick … is not minding that it hurts ~ Lawrence of Arabia
The trick … is not minding that it hurts ~ Lawrence of Arabia :: I bet you never thought of Peter O'Toole as a buddhist or daoist, right? But in this most famous of scenes, when Lawrence snuffs out the match which burned him, and is instantly transported to the desert, he shows the depth of his immunity to suffering. (No man is immune to pain.)
