Comparing wisdom from scientists and great religious leaders.

A mathematical truth is timeless, it does not come into being when we discover it. Yet its discovery is a very real event.
Realization is nothing to be gained afresh; it is already there. All that is necessary is to get rid of the thought `I have not realized'.
Sri Ramana Maharshi
If we ask, for instance, whether the position of the electron remains the same, we must say "no"; if we ask whether the position of the electron changes with time, we must say "no"; if we ask whether the electron is at rest, we must say "no"; if we ask whether it is in motion, we must say "no."
J. Robert Oppenheimer
He is far and he is near,
He moves and he moves not.
The Bhagavad Gita
It is a primitive form of thought that things either exist or do not exist.
Sir Arthur Eddington
To say "it is" is to grasp for permanence. To say "it is not" is to adopt the view of nihilism. Therefore a wise person does not say "exists" or "does not exist."
