"Conquer anger by love. Conquer evil by good. Conquer the stingy by giving. Conquer the liar by truth."

Dhammapada



"Is there a deed, Rahula, thou dost wish to do? Then bethink thee thus: Is this deed conducive to my own harm, or to others harm, or to that of both? Then is this a bad deed entailing suffering. Such a deed must thou surely not do."
