'Let me warn you, you who are thirsty for knowledge, against the thickest of opinions and the conflict of words. Opinions mean nothing; they may be beautiful or ugly, cleaver or foolish, anyone can embrace or reject them. The teaching which you have heard, however, is not my opinion, and its goal is not to explain the world to those who are thirsty for knowledge. its goal is quite different; its goal is salvation from suffering.That is what Gautam teaches, nothing else.'
Siddhartha, Hermann Hesse
