"He who realizes his folly is not so very foolish any more, and he who knows that he lives in delusion is no longer so very far astray. He who is profoundly misguided will not be able to shake off his blindness, and he who is profoundly foolish will never become discerning, however long he may live.
"If three men are walking together and one wanders from the path, they will still be able to reach their destination, for the foolish one is in the minority, but if two of them lose their way, they will not reach their destination because the erring ones are in the majority.
"Today, now that the whole world lives in delusion, I am unable to persuade people to take the right direction, even though I exhort them to do so. Is this not pitiful?"
— Chuang Tzu
