Laissent parfois sortir de confuses paroles ;
L’homme y passe à travers des forêts de symboles

Quote
Ego is a social institution with no physical reality. The ego is simply your symbol of yourself. Just as the word "water" is a noise that symbolizes a certain liquid without being it, so too the idea of ego symbolizes the role you play, who you are, but it is not the same as your living organism.”
