  • One who sees
    sees those who see and those who don't.
    One who doesn't see
    sees neither.
    • 1.61
  • I do not fear death;
    nor do I long for life.
    I’ll lay down this body,
    aware and mindful.
    • 1.20
  • Go, child, to any place
    where there’s plenty of food,
    where it’s safe and free of peril—
    may you not be overcome by sorrow!
