Challenging quote for the week

Blyth's tomb

I have been asked many questions in my life about poetry, religion, life, and I have given precisely the same number of answers, but I have never, I repeat, never, satisfied a single interlocutor. Why? Because all questioning is a way of avoiding the real answer, which, as Zen tells us, is really known already. Every man is enlightened, but wishes he wasn’t. Every man knows he must love his enemies, and sell all he has and give to the poor, but he doesn’t wish to know it-so he asks questions.R. H. Blyth
