"One who, while himself seeking happiness, oppresses with violence other beings who also desire happiness, will not attain happiness hereafter."

Dhammapada Ch. 10



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

Dhammapada



"Monks, whatsoever grounds there be for good works undertaken with a view to [favorable] rebirth, all of them are not worth one-sixteenth part of that goodwill which is the heart's release; goodwill alone, which is the heart's release, shines and burns and flashes forth in surpassing them."

Itivuttaka 19
