„For centuries we have been spoon-fed by our teachers, by our authorities, by our books, our saints.“

—  Jiddu Krishnamurti Indian spiritual philosopher 1895 - 1986

1960s, Freedom From The Known (1969)
Kontext: For centuries we have been spoon-fed by our teachers, by our authorities, by our books, our saints. We say, "Tell me all about it — what lies beyond the hills and the mountains and the earth?" and we are satisfied with their descriptions, which means that we live on words and our life is shallow and empty. We are secondhand people. We have lived on what we have been told, either guided by our inclinations, our tendencies, or compelled to accept by circumstances and environment. We are the result of all kinds of influences and there is nothing new in us, nothing that we have discovered for ourselves; nothing original, pristine, clear.
