There is no 'way to peace,' there is only 'peace.

But the attitude of faith is to let go, and become open to truth, whatever it might turn out to be.

If you have no critics you'll likely have no success.
The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.
The truth. It is a beautiful and terrible thing, and must therefore be treated with great caution.
No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.
