तत्त्वमात्मस्थमज्ञात्वा मूढः शास्त्रेषु मुह्यति ।
गोपः कक्षगते छागे कूपे पश्यति दुर्मतिः ॥
- गरुड पुराण
tattvam Atmastham ajnAtvA mUDhaH shAstreShu muhyati ।
gopaH kakShagate ChAge kUpe pashyati durmatiH ॥

The truth is hidden within oneself. Fools don't see it and search for it in the scriptures. Just like the story of a shepherd who has the sheep in his arms and looks for it in the well.
- Garuda Purana
