A few words from the Buddha
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumoured by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.
But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the common good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
The past is history, the future is a mystery and today is a gift.
Only where you were on foot, have you ever truly been. Goethe
