Bodhidharma

Whoever knows that the mind is a fiction and empty of anything real knows that his own mind neither exists nor doesn’t exist. The ignorant keep creating the mind, claiming it exists. And adepts keep negating the mind, claiming it doesn’t exist. But the truly wise neither create nor negate the mind. This is what’s meant by the mind that neither exists nor doesn’t exist.

— Bodhidharma (5th cent.)
