All worldly pursuits have but the one unavoidable and inevitable end, which is sorrow: acquisitions end in dispersion; buildings, in destruction; meetings, in separation; births, in death. Knowing this, one should, from the very first, renounce acquisition and heaping up, and building, and meeting; and, faithful to the commands of an eminent guru, set about realizing the Truth. - Milarepa

Language is limited. It cannot be used to express colour to the blind nor sound to the deaf and cannot be used to express truth. Truth, being above the limitations of language, can only be expressed symbolically or by analogy, and the comprehension of truth so expressed is relative to the understanding of the recipient. - Henry N. Gerguson

In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in an clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness. Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth. - Mahatma Gandhi

A perception, sudden as blinking, that subject and object are one, will lead to a deeply mysterious understanding; and by this understanding you will awaken to the truth... - Huang Po

When wisdom awakens in you, you will see truth wherever you look. Truth is all there is. - Ajahn Chah

The truth is open for all who can understand. You must be lamps unto your selves. You must depend upon no eternal refuge, depend on no leader, and depend on no teacher. Look within. You are the Buddha.

When wisdom awakens within you, you will see Truth wherever you look. Truth is all there is. It's like when you've learned how to read - you can then read anywhere you go.

Truth is both the way and the goal, the direction to the destination and the destination itself.
