Why the Asian fundamentally despises the nature of European and American thinking
"The intelligent man who is proud of his intelligence is like the condemned man who is proud of his large cell." — Simone Weil
Rudolf Steiner: "The Asian fundamentally despises the nature of European and American thinking because it always presents him with a utilitarian standpoint which can only be governed by the intellect, by the rational mind."
"You are trying to measure the universe with a foot ruler."
— Swamiji, frequently
Rudolf Steiner: "The intellect has the fundamental problem of overreaching; it is always seeking to encompass the boundless nature of the world. In real life, it should remain a tool in a specific concrete activity."
