- Wolf quotes 12th Century Japanese poet and Buddhist monk Saigyō, as translated by Burton Watson - Saigyô, Poems of a Mountain Home Columbia University Press, 1991 ISBN 0-231-07492-1 cloth ISBN 0-231-07493-X pbk p.137)
- Wolf paraphrases Buddhist proverb 地獄極楽は心にあり (Jigoku Gokuraku wa kokoro ni ari) – "Hell and Heaven are in the hearts of men."
- Smiling Buddha Cabaret says "In popular culture the quote “Water Which is Too Pure Has No Fish” comes from the movie Bulletproof Monk with Chow Yun-Fat. But it originates from the Ts’ai Ken T’an (Vegetable Roots Discourses) compiled by Hong Zicheng during the time of the Ming Dynasty (1368 to 1644) in China. ... "Soil that is dirty grows the countless things. Water that is clear has no fish. Thus as a mature person you properly include and retain a measure of grime. You can’t just go along enjoying your own private purity and restraint. (Robert Aitken trans.)
