As I'm pretty ignorant of buddhist culture, can someone tell me how reliable are buddhist texts supposed to be as historical documents reliably quoting the man himself ?

That is, did he really say those things ?

Do we have all the sayings that are relevant or, as in the bible and with Greek philosophers we only have fragments, re-writes and interpretations ?
