Epiphany
The 12th day of Christmas.


One well chosen-word or one well-chosen
line of poetry, which brings the listener peace,
is better than a thousand spoken in vain.

One verse of the Buddha's teaching,
Which is certain to bring the listener peace,
is better than a thousand spoken for no reason.

8. The Thousand, Verses 100, 101, & 102

Oh, gosh I love this. LOVE it. Mind if I shamelessly steal this for my sidebar?
