DHAMMPADA (adapted)

“Love yourself and be awake–
today, tomorrow, and always.

First establish yourself in the way,
then teach others,
and so defeat sorrow.

To straighten the crooked
you must first do the harder thing–
straighten yourself.

You are your only master,
who else?
Subdue yourself, and discover your master.”
