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.

-- A.I,50

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.
