Famous quotes containing the words foundation and/or gurdjieff:

    The foundation of humility is truth. The humble man sees himself as he is. If his depreciation of himself were untrue,... it would not be praiseworthy, and would be a form of hypocrisy, which is one of the evils of Pride. The man who is falsely humble, we know from our own experience, is one who is falsely proud.
    Henry Fairlie (1924–1990)

    A man can only attain knowledge with the help of those who possess it. This must be understood from the very beginning. One must learn from him who knows.
    —George Gurdjieff (c. 1877–1949)
