A Hard Boiled Thought for the Day: The Wisdom of the East?

"He found her, Moira Langtry, that is, in church.

It was one of those screwball outfits which seem to flourish on the West Coast.  The head clown was a yogi or a swami or something of the kind.  While his audience listened as though hypnotized, he droned on and on of the Supreme Wisdom of the East, never once explaining why the world's highest incidence of disease, death, and illiteracy endured at the fount of said wisdom"

From The Grifters (1963) by Jim Thompson
