It's whats on the inside that truly counts, for it is the only thing that is real...
Jesus said, "Why do you wash the outside of the cup? Don't you understand that the one who made the inside is also the one who made the outside?" -The Gospel of Thomas, verse 89- (Gnostic/Christian)
"Dissolve the self in the supreme Self as the pot-space is dissolved in
infinite space." –Adhyatma Upanishad- (Hindu)
"Let yourself be open and life will be easier. A spoon of salt in a glass of water makes the water undrinkable. A spoon of salt in a lake is almost unnoticed." -The Buddha- (Buddhist)
