Alan Wilson Watts (1915–1973).
A British philosopher and former Anglican priest, Watts is mostly known for his popular interpretation of Zen for the Western audience. The author of numerous books, Watts was an insightful, humorous lecturer of the 1960's era, braking barriers, always fresh and controversial.
"The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance. I have realized that the past and future are illusions. They exist only in the present, which is all there is."
