I think the quote is a translation of one of the teachings within what is known as 'the greatest commandment: Love'.

"The greatest commandment tells us that love should motivate everything we do. And yet we fall short in our motives. Sometimes we do right for the wrong reason. Perhaps we are afraid of what others think. We want others to think well of us, so we do right, but our motive is essentially self-centered."

This is the kind of wisdom that spans all religions and secular beliefs and non-beliefs. why? because it's wise, reguardless of who said it.

Sometimes I wonder if everything that happens in the physical world is just a representation of our heart's motives and decisions. Then I think to myself "whoa there Nick, even if that's true it's not much good to think about". Then I sign on here so I don't have to think .

There’s no point in translating all of the old Chinese texts—not if you’re serious about understanding real Zen. The sound of the rain needs no translation.

I think this may have something to do with the differance between academic reasoning and direct experiance, at least that's what my academic reasoning leads me to believe

zen is universal, it is felt by the Chinese as much as it can be felt by anyone else. And like nennip said, experience as opposed to academia
