A Quote by Bodhidharma on belief, buddhism, colors, falsehood, insanity, knowledge, mind, people, sage, teaching, understanding, wisdom, and world

. . . the fools of this world prefer to look for sages far away. They don't believe that the wisdom of their own mind is the sage . . . the sutras say, "Mind is the teaching." But people of no understanding don't believe in their own mind or that by understanding this teaching they can become a sage. They prefer to look for distant knowledge and long for things in space, buddha-images, light, incense, and colors. They fall prey to falsehood and lose their minds to insanity.

Bodhidharma (c. 440 AD - 528 AD)
