Stale Knowledge from Yesterday


“When I say that ‘I know’ my wife, it is that I have an image about her, but that image is always in the past; that image prevents me from looking at her — she may already be changing. . .So the mind must be in a constant state of learning, therefore always in the active present, always fresh; not stale with the accumulated knowledge of yesterday.”

–J. Krishnamurti, from You Are The World
