Dhammapada

Finished the Dhammapada today.

Here are my highlights:

For hatred does not cease by hatred at any time:  hatred ceases by love, this is an old rule.

If a traveller does not meet with one who is his better, or his equal, let him firmly keep to his solitary journey; there is no companionship wtih a fool.

It is good to tame the mind, which is difficult to hold in and flighty, rushing wherever it listeth; a tamed mind brings happiness

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.  If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him, as the wheel follows.

His thought is quiet, quiet are his word and deed, when he has obtained freedom by true knowledge, when he has thus become a quiet man.

If one man conquer in battle a thousand times thousand men, and if another conquer himself, he is the greatest of conquerors.

A man is not learned because he talks much; he who is patient, free from hatred and fear, he is called learned.

He in whom there is truth, virtue, love, restraint, moderation, he who is free from impurity and is wise, he is called an elder.

Let him not despise what he has received, nor ever envy others:  a mendicant who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.

He who never identifies himself with name and form, and does not grieve over what is no more, he indeed is called a Bhikshu.
