Walnuts have a shell, and they have a kernel. Religions are the same. They have an essence, but then they have a protective coating. This is not the only way to put it. But it's my way. So the kernels are the same. However, the shells are different. / Huston Smith
'If you were going to die soon and had only one phone call you could make, who would you call and what would you say? And why are you waiting?'
