Quote of the Day

by Jiddu Krishnamurti

To approach and try to understand truth through the division of "mine" and "yours" is utterly futile. The idea of tolerance becomes an intellectual invention which covers up up the conflict arising out of this false division. When there is affection, real understanding, there need be no tolerance. When you love somebody you do not tolerate that person; you love him, that is all. It is the same with all the inventions of the mind. When there is real affection, freed from personal attachment, then this much abused word "brotherhood" disappears. Then you need not organize yourselves to be brotherly; you need not belong to any society, organization or church. You are then a human being, which is greater than all theories.
