˹ 213 - 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.
˹ 250 - This, O Bhikkhus, is the noble truth of suffering : birth is suffering, decay is suffering, illness is suffering, death is suffering, presence of objects we hate is suffering, separation from objects we love is suffering, not to obtain what we desire is suffering. Briefly, the fivefold clinging to existence is suffering.
˹ 173 - ... strange. Can that which me befell Have no more substance than a peal that sounds, And, having sounded, dies away in silence? Woman, who art thou? WITTIKIN. I? ... And who art thou? HEINRICH. Dost ask me that? . . . Yes! Who am I? God wot! How often have I prayed to Heaven to tell me! . . . Who am I, God! . . . But Heaven itself is mute. Yet this I do know...
˹ 250 - This, O Bhikkhus, is the Noble Truth of the Path which leads to the cessation of suffering : that holy eight-fold Path, that is to say, Right Belief, Right Aspiration, Right Speech, Right Conduct, Right Means of Livelihood, Right Endeavour, Right Memory, Right Meditation.
˹ 160 - Follow, happy Radha ! follow, In the quiet falling twilight The steps of him who followed thee So steadfastly and far ; Let us bring thee where the Banjulas Have spread a roof of crimson, Lit up by many a marriage-lamp Of planet, sun, and star : For the hours of doubt are over, And thy glad and faithful lover Hath found the road by tears and prayers To thy divinest side ; And thou wilt not now deny him One delight of all thy beauty, But yield up open-hearted His pearl, his prize, his bride.
