Gautama Buddha
“Yes, Kālāmas, it is proper that your have doubt, that you have perplexity, for a doubt has arisen in a matter which is doubtful. Now, look you Kālāmas, do not be led by reports, or traditions, or hearsay.

And when you know for yourself that certain things are wholesome and good, then accept them and follow them.”
