The Master had quoted Aristotle:
"In the quest of truth, it would seem better and indeed necessary
to give up what is dearest to us."
And he substituted the word "God" for "truth."
"I am ready, in the quest for God, to give up anything: wealth,
friends, family, country, life itself. What else can a person give up?"
The Master calmly replied,
"One's beliefs about God."
The disciple went away sad, for he clung to his convictions.
