"Believe nothing, no matter where you read it,
or who said it, no matter if I have said it,
unless it agrees with your own reason
and your own common sense."
- — Buddha
"Have nothing in your houses that
you do not know to be useful
or believe to be beautiful."
"Life is easy to chronicle,
but bewildering to practice."
- — E. M. Forster, A Room with a View
