Truth is not that which can be demonstrated by the air of logic. If orange trees are hardy and rich in fruit in this bit  of soil and not that, then this bit of soil is what is truth for orange trees.  If a particular religion, or culture, or scale of values, if one form of activity rather than another, brings self- fulfillment to a man, releases the prince within him unknown to himself, then that scale of values, that culture, that form of activity constitutes his truth.

The human being is part of the whole, called by us the ‘universe’, a part limited in time and space.

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.  Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored 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 good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
