Truth is a pathless land

“Truth is a pathless land.”

- Jiddu Krishnamurti, Philosopher, Speaker, Writer

Quote source: “Truth is a pathless land” was the title and subject of Krishnamurti’s Dissolution speech (3 August 1929) in Ommen, The Netherlands whereby Krishnamurti, acting as Head of the Order of the Star in the East, dissolved the very organization he was made the leader of in the role of a ‘world teacher’. Krishnamurti gave this speech before 3000 members on the opening day of the annual Star Camp and went on to become an independent teacher to help free people from their own conformity and self-imposed imprisonment.

The Bruce Lee quote was written posthumously from Lee’s writing.
