Dependence upon others for truth and purpose
"The life of a person who is dependent upon others for truth and purpose is like a ship tossing on the sea. Until the ship's anchor is dropped to the ocean floor, there will be no stability in the rolling waves. Inner truth must be rooted in one's own perceptions and experience; at the gate to the palace of truth, each of us stands alone. Dare to know your own mind - and speak it!"
