He who knows does not speak;
He who speaks does not know. Stop up the openings,
Close down the doors, Rub off the sharp edges.

Give up contention:
This is called finding the unity of life.

Praise and blame cannot ruffle you, You are honored by all the world.
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
— Dalai Lama
