And people get all fouled up because they want the world to have meaning as if it were words.... As if you had a meaning, as if you were a mere word, as if you were something that could be looked up in a dictionary. You are meaning.

Alan Wilson Watts (1915–1973) was an English author, teacher, and speaker known for his modern interpretations of Buddhism, Taoism, and Hinduism for a Western audience. He moved to the United States in 1938, and after training in Zen Buddhism he became an Episcopal priest, later leaving the ministry to teach about religion, philosophy, psychotherapy, human consciousness, and psychedelics. Watts gained a huge following in the 1960s from people seeking alternative ways of seeing the world.
