„To understand oneself requires patience, tolerant awareness“

—  Jiddu Krishnamurti Indian spiritual philosopher 1895 - 1986
Context: To understand oneself requires patience, tolerant awareness; the self is a book of many volumes which you cannot read in a day, but when once you begin to read, you must read every word, every sentence, every paragraph for in them are the intimations of the whole. The beginning of it is the ending of it. If you know how to read, supreme wisdom is to be found.
