Buddha Shakyamuni

Accept my words only when you have examined them for yourselves; do not accept them simply because of the reverence you have for me. Those who only have faith in me and affection for me will not find the final freedom. But those who have faith in the truth and are determined on the path, they will find awakening.

--Buddha Shakyamuni, from Majjhima Nikaya
