— Yangqi (1025–1072)
I am asked to expound the supreme vehicle of Zen, but if it is the supreme vehicle, even the sages stand aside, buddhas, and Zen masters disappear. Why? Because you are all the same as the buddhas of old. But can you really believe and trust this? If you really can, let us all disband and go our separate ways. If you don't leave, I'll go on fooling you.
