Dwelling in kindness, a monk with faith in the Awakened One’s teaching, would attain the good state, the peaceful state: stilling-of-fabrications ease. Monk, bail out this boat. It will take you lightly when bailed. Having cut through passion, aversion, you go from there to Unbinding. – Dhammapada [25]

That people are unknowing does not mean that they are unknowing like cows or goats. Even ignorant people look for a pathway to reality. But, searching for it, they often misunderstand what they encounter. They pursue names and categories instead of going beyond that name to that which is real. – Digha Nikaya
