Daily Buddhism Quotes

An accomplished person does not by a philosophical view, or by thinking become arrogant, for he is not of that sort; not by holy works, nor by tradition is he to be led, he is not led into any of the resting places of the mind.

-adapted from the Sutta-nipata, translated by V. Fausboll
