Do not ask the stones or the trees how to live; they cannot tell yo

But the Goreans have a saying, which came to me in the darkness, in the hall.

“Do not ask the stones or the trees how to live; they cannot tell you; they do not have tongues; do not ask the wise man how to live, for, if he knows, he will know he cannot tell you; if you would learn how to live do not ask the question; its answer is not in the question but in the answer, which is not in words; do not ask how to live, but, instead, proceed to do so.”

Marauders of Gor, p. 19
