So many books, so many scholars and if one wants to be cynical, so many dollars to be made. All the books and sages of the world are illusionary. A million books and billions of words and they are all useless without being put into practice. What is real is what is in front of you now and what you do with it; not yesterday’s leftovers or tomorrow’s promises. There is talk and there is action. There are a lot of talkers in the world but not so many doers. Talk does not chop the wood, carry the water, or cross the river. Action does.
