There Is No Path To Truth.

There is no path to truth. Truth must be discovered, but there is no formula for its discovery. What is formulated is not true. You must set out on the uncharted sea, and the uncharted sea is yourself. You must set out to discover yourself, but not according to any plan or pattern, for then there is no discovery. Discovery brings joy - not the remembered, comparative joy but joy that is ever new. Self-knowledge is the beginning of wisdom in whose tranquillity and silence there is the immeasurable.”

- J. Krishnamurti, “Commentaries on Living: From the Notebooks of J. Krishnamurti (Series One)”, New York: Harper, 1956. Ed. Rajagopal Desikacharya.
