Smart man, this Buddha.
I often think that society today has a heard-type mentality. We tend to base our opinions on the popular opinion instead of our own. Of course I have no statistical facts to back up my observation, but it just seems that way.
It’s because of that this quote stuck out. I think it’s important to have values. It’s important to know yourself well enough to set standards for what you let into your lives and who you surround yourself with. Once you make up your mind on who you want to be, what you want to stand for, it’s easy to believe in nothing but your own reason and sense.
