"In the search for truth there are certain questions that are not important. Of
what material is the universe constructed? Is the universe eternal? Are there
limits or not to the universe? What is the ideal form of organization for human
society? If a man were to postpone his search and practice for Enlightenment
until such questions were solved, he would die before he found the path."
