Some people say, 'But God says' and 'Jesus says' and 'the Buddha says' and 'the prophet Mohammed ( peace be upon him ) says' and 'the Guru says' and 'the Talmud says' and Krishna says'  but I reply, 'But what do you say...'.

A silence follows, as I and ...... God, and Jesus, and the Buddha and the prophet Mohammed ( peace be upon him ), and the Jewish sages and Krishna and all others beside, wait to hear the person answer.

For it is not what you have been told to do that counts, it is what you think you should do and why you think you should do it that really matters, without quoting another's instruction or basing your choice on another's dictate.

So what do you say.......
