„Thought can never capture the movement of life, it is much too slow.“

—  U.G. Krishnamurti, livro Mind is a Myth, Mind is a Myth (1987), Context: Thought can never capture the movement of life, it is much too slow. It is like lightning and thunder. They occur simultaneously, but sound, travelling slower than light, reaches you later, creating the illusion of two separate events. Ch. 3: Not Knowing Is Your Natural State
