˹ 115 - For hatred does not cease by hatred at any time: hatred ceases by love, this is an old rule.
˹ 49 - All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts, it is made up of our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him, as the wheel follows the foot of the ox that draws the carriage.

The talk then of these Brahmans versed in the Three Vedas turns out to be ridiculous, mere words, a vain and empty thing !
˹ 94 - Whoever has found and understood the Self that has entered into this patched-together hiding-place, he indeed is the creator, for he is the maker of everything, his is the world, and he is the world itself.
˹ 50 - This great earth, Ananda, is established on water, the water, on wind, and the wind rests upon space. And at such a time, Ananda, as the mighty winds blow, the waters are shaken by the mighty winds as they blow, and by the moving water the earth is shaken.
