There are three things that are real: God, human folly, and laughter.
The first two are beyond our comprehension, so we must do what we can with the third.
—John Fitzgerald Kennedy, quoting from the Ramayana
I am not a Christian, not Jew, not Hindu, not Buddhist. I belong to the beloved, have seen the two worlds as one, and that one called two and know, first last, outer, inner, only that breath, breathing, human being.
—Jalla al Din Rumi
