We can achieve something with hard work,
but never as much as with kindness.

Kindness is a gift that tends to return to its giver.


Knowledge has not freed us from illusion,
it has prevented us from seeing the truth about ourselves.

We consider knowledge a passive reserve that we use when we need it, and that we can put aside when we don't. This is not the case. Outdated information actively prevents the truth from entering our minds.

Knowledge is overrated.
The essence of being human is wondering.

No amount of knowledge will remove stupidity from the world.
