Sayings to Ponder

I read a silly saying today, which I later found out was from the comic A Softer World (which I've never read, so I'm not sure if it is safe to link to):
"I was so sure my search would end when I found God, but then I could not find my car keys and my cat ran away."
One of my congregants is struggling to be at peace with God while having worries about her cats, so this was particularly timely.

Speaking of sayings that make you think about spirituality, how about Zen Koans as shared by a ninja? Chasidic Judaism also has a vast collection of short parables made from events in the lives of its famous practitioners, but unfortunately I don't have links to any. Nor do I know of any compilations shared by Jewish ninjas.
