LEAVE ALL QUARRELS BEHIND


                    Speak quietly to everyone, and they too will

                              be gentle in their speech.

                    Harsh words hurt, and come back to

                              the speaker.


                    If your mind is still, like a broken gong,

                              you have entered nirvana, leaving all

                              quarrels behind you.


                    Patiently I shall bear harsh words as the

elephant bears arrows on the battlefield.

                    People are often inconsiderate.


                    Best are those who have trained their mind

                              to endure harsh words patiently.


                                                             — THE BUDDHA
