Clinging to views…

In my research on mindfulness I get across numerous Buddha quotes. Some are probably just fake ones, but this one here seems to be about right:
“People with opinions just go around bothering each other.”
Ha! Academic life in a nutshell. Only difference is that here people’s views are taken to be true, and therefore it is even more intolerable if others disagree with us. Hence the “bothering”, which normally masquerades as academic criticism.
