1. Know from the rivers

    Comment

    Know from the rivers in clefts and in crevices: those in small channels flow noisily, the great flow silent. Whatever’s not full makes noise. Whatever is full is quiet. ~Buddha, The Sutta Nipata

    Conquer anger with non-anger. Conquer badness with goodness. Conquer meanness with generosity. Conquer dishonesty with truth. ~Buddha, The Dhammapada

    They blame those who remain silent, they blame those speak much, they blame those who speak in moderation. There is none in the world who is not blamed. ~Buddha, The Dhammapada

    A smile to start your day.
    A prayer to bless your way.

    A message to wish you good day.

  6. Power and Love

    58

    Power does not know
    What it is doing
    And
    Why it is doing.
    Love knows
    What it is doing
    And
    Why it is doing.

    ~Sri Chinmoy

Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
