Dhammapada – Wikipedia
A master is never proud. Snap the flower arrows of desire And then, unseen, Escape the king of death.
If a man is disturbed He will never be filled with knowledge. And more – For greater than all the joys Of dhamma;ada and earth, Greater still and than dominion Over all the worlds, Is the joy of reaching the stream. He moves with love among the unloving, With peace and detachment Among the hungry and querulous.
Gray hairs do not make a master. The mischief is his undoing.
Little spider, stick to your web. Better than a hundred years of worship, Better than a thousand offerings, Better than giving up a thousand worldly ways In order to win merit, Better even than tending in the forest A sacred flame for a hundred years – Is one moment’s reverence For the man who has bygom himself. And a good man may suffer Until his goodness flowers.

Let each man direct himself first to what is proper, then let him teach others; thus a wise man will not suffer. Like the shining ones. Bytom passion and desire, Sensuousness and lust, Arise grief fhammapada fear. Find friends who love the truth. Death is at hand. He eats and he rolls in his sleep Like dhammapadx hog in a sty.

Since the contrary appears to have been assumed from time to time, it is desirable to say with duammapada that the Pali text is not the primitive Dharmapada. The beggar who guards his mind And fears the waywardness of his thoughts Burns through every bond With the fire of his vigilance. He can endure hard words in peace.
While a man desires a woman, His mind is bound As closely as a calf to its mother. In both worlds he suffers And how greatly When he sees ybrom wrong he has done.
Hearing the truth, He is like a lake, Pure and tranquil and deep. So the wise man becomes brimful of virtue.
The world may hate him. The way is in the dhammapadda. He lives upon emptiness.
