˹ lv - 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.
˹ cxxix - If a man looks after the faults of others, and is always inclined to be offended, his own passions will grow, and he is far from the destruction of passions.
˹ lvi - For hatred does not cease by hatred at any time: hatred ceases by love, this is an old rule.
˹ cxlii - ... painful it is to dwell with equals (to share everything in common), and the itinerant mendicant is beset with pain. Therefore let no man be an itinerant mendicant, and he will not be beset with pain.
˹ cxxviii - The fault of others is easily perceived, but that of oneself is difficult to perceive ; a man winnows his neighbour's faults like chaff, but his own fault he hides, as a cheat hides the bad die from the gambler.
˹ cxi - Not to commit any sin, to do good, and to purify one's mind, that is the teaching of (all) the Awakened.
˹ xciii - Let no man think lightly of evil, saying in his heart, It will not come nigh unto me. Even by the falling of water-drops a waterpot is filled; the fool becomes full of evil, even if he gather it little by little.
˹ cii - Looking for the maker of this tabernacle, I shall have to run through a course of many births, so long as I do not find ( him ) ; and painful is birth again and again. But now, maker of the tabernacle, thou hast been seen; thou shalt not make up this tabernacle again. All thy rafters are broken, thy ridge-pole is sundered; the mind, approaching the Eternal ( visankhara, nirvana ) has attained to the extinction of all desires.
˹ cxxxiv - Not only by discipline and vows, not only by much learning, not by entering into a trance, not by sleeping alone, do I earn the happiness of release which no worldling can know.
˹ cii - After a stronghold has been made of the bones, it is covered with flesh and blood, and there dwell in it old age and death, pride and deceit.
