Suzuki-roshi, dharmapraat aug. 1965 (audio)

Even though you compare various religions and you take good points of, points from various religions, but if you seek for too much honey from various flowers, which is not necessary for you, you will be spoiled by honey.

A little bit honey is enough for us. There is no need to be greedy. If it is true, a little bit [of] truth… a faint idea of truth is enough. And you should completely devote yourself to the truth you have, you, you saw, completely. Then you will find out the true meaning of the truth. It is not matter of which is good or bad.

It is matter of whether you devote yourself to the truth completely or not.
