The sutras
Still it is given thee to fight and overcome thy foolish passions: learn thou to subdue them.
Be sober; diligent, and chaste; avoid all wrath. In public or in secret ne'er permit thou any evil; and above all else respect thyself.
Speak not nor act before thou hast reflected; be just.
... Remember that a power invincible ordains to die;
... That riches and the honours easily acquired, are easy thus to lose.
As to the evils which destiny involves, judge them what they are; endure them all and strive, as much as thou art able, to modify the traits. The gods, to the most cruel, have not exposed the sage.
Even as truth, does error have its lovers; with prudence the philosopher approves or blames; if error triumph, he departs and waits.
