There is a saying: "All concepts are wrong concepts". Is that an appropriate or correct statement?

This statement is misleading if not incorrect, especially for beginning practitioners. The declaration that all concepts are wrong concepts is by itself an idea, a concept and if it is right, it then form a contradictory paradox in itself, an endless vicious circle. It may be more appropriate in saying that "all concepts are non-concepts" but then this stage of realisation is only for the very advanced practitioners to contemplate. Beginners should follow the basic Buddhist teachings which are fundamental doctrines and vital concepts to be good. Don't forget that without the basic concepts, we can neither read nor talk, let alone to understand or to practice.
