The soul does not know
It is knowledge itself
It does not exist
It is existence
Itself
It does not love
it is love itself

Yogi Aphorisms, Maharishi Patanjali, p.130, 4th century BC.



As rain leaks through an ill-hatched house,
so passion leaks through an ill-trained mind.
As rain does not leak through a well-hatched house,
so passion does not leak through a well-trained mind.

Path of Wisdom (Dhammapada), Twin Verses 13/14,
Buddha Siddharta Gautama, 5th century BC.



There is no such violent torrent like thirst.

Dhammapada, Chapter 18: Impurity, Verse 251.
