A veces una vez ves una cita falsa de Buda y luego más tarde la ves de nuevo como un "proverbio zen"; o viceversa.***
Any quote attributed to being a “zen proverb” is either fake (the common case), or else (uncommonly) a real fragment from the historical corpus that has probably lost its actual source (and context, nuance…) through being rehashed and recycled countless times within pop spirituality books (which seem to have each other and the anecdotes of their self-proclaimed “guru/master/meditation teacher” authors as the only sources rather than actual Chan works). Treat “proverbs” like these just like you’d treat a suspicious “Buddha” quote : with caution.
 Sometimes you’ll even see a fake Buddha quote once, and then later see it again as a “zen proverb”; or vice-versa.
