“the problem of suffering still remains in the world and will remain in the world so long as greed, anger, and delusion on both the individual and collective level remain.
In the long run if you want to really have an effect on the world’s anguish, learn to work ceaselessly on yourself even as you continue to strive, on a daily basis, to do the best you can for others.”
