The Buddha’s Words of Wisdom

I have learned two things: not to be content with good states one has already developed, and not to give up trying.

Without giving up, I keep trying and think: “Gladly would I have my skin, bones and sinews wither, and my flesh and blood dry up, if only I can struggle until I win that which can be won by human effort.”

It was by earnest endeavor that I won enlightenment and the highest freedom from bonds.
