It is proper to doubt.Do not be led by holy scriptures, or by mere logic or inference,or by appearances, or by the authority of religious teachers. But when you realize that something is unwholesome and bad for you, give it up. And when you realize that something is wholesome and good for you, do it.
-- The Buddha (Siddhartha Gautama)
It is better to carry stones with a wise man than accept the meal of a madman.

Let me take the whole universe and put it on the tips of your eyelashes. Don't be impatient when you hear this, but slowly and carefully examine it. If you are a good student, you won't rest until you have realized it.Then you will be a superior person; when you hear that some great Master has appeared in the world to liberate all beings, you'll immediately clap your hands over your ears. As long as you aren't your own Master, you may think you have gained something from what you hear; but it is secondhand merchandise, and not yours.
Nothing in excess.
-- In the Temple at Delphi
You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.

-- William Blake
