Buddha Vacana (July 19, 2555)
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 win that which can be won by human effort.’ It was by such earnest endeavor that I won enlightenment and the highest freedom from bonds.
Note. This verse from the Tipitaka book of Anguttara tells how the Buddha see the world and try to change it. Far from being super-being with super-power, the Buddha tried and tried and tried again.
