Religious Thought 208

It is not those who lack energy or refrain from action, but those who work without expectation of reward who attain the goal of meditation. Theirs is true renunciation.
- Bhagavad Gita 6:1

Hence, the purpose of the Holy Life does not consist in acquiring alms, honor, or fame, nor in gaining morality, concentration, or the eye of knowledge. That unshakable deliverance of the heart: that, indeed, is the object of Holy Life, that is its essence, that is its goal.
- Samyutta Nikaya, translated by Nyanatiloka

Religious Thought 207

My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents, and I lay them both at His feet.
- Mohandas Gandhi

Turn away from mischief. Again and again, turn away, Before sorrow befalls you. Set your heart on doing good. Do it over and over again, And you will be filled with joy.
- Dhammapada 117-118

Religious Thought 206

There are ignorant people who speak flowery words and take delight in the letter of the law, saying there is nothing else. Their hearts are full of selfish desires, Arjuna. Their idea of heaven is their own enjoyment, and the aim of all their activities is pleasure and power. The fruit of their actions is continual rebirth. Those whose minds are swept away by the pursuit of pleasure and power are incapable of following the supreme goal and will not attain samadhi.
- Bhagavad Gita 2:42-44

And what, monks, is Right View? It is, monks, the knowledge of suffering, the knowledge of the origin of suffering, the knowledge of the cessation of suffering, and the knowledge of the way of practice leading to the cessation of suffering. This is called Right View.
- Digha Nikaya

24 Hour Service

Needing some clothes cleaned in a hurry, a man searched the small 
Georgia town in which he was visiting until he found a sign which read:

"Cleaning and Pressing, 24-Hour Service."

After explaining his needs, he said, "I'll be back for my suit tomorrow."

"Won't be ready till Saturday," replied the proprietor.

"But I thought you had 24-hour service," the customer protested.

"We do, son," the proprietor said reproachfully. 
"But we only work eight hours a day. Today's Thursday - eight hours today, 
eight hours Friday, eight on Saturday. That's 24-hour service."
