We have to be realistic. We can’t be taken in by appearances; we have to adopt a realistic approach. It’s through education that we come to grips with reality. Understanding grows first from hearing or reading, followed by analysis and experiment, and then really thinking about it. It is one of our unique human abilities that we can look at reality from more than one angle.

There is only one contemporary religious leader who ever sounds like he is talking to thinking beings — thank God that he sent us the Dalai Lama!
