Through the round of many births I roamed without reward, without rest, seeking the house-builder. Painful is birth again & again. House-builder, you’re seen! You will not build a house again. All your rafters broken, the ridge pole destroyed, gone to the Unformed, the mind has come to the end of craving. – Dhammapada [11]

Greed, I say, is a great flood; it is a whirlpool sucking one down, a constant yearning, seeking a hold, continually in movement; difficult to cross is the morass of sensual desire. A sage does not deviate from truth, a brahmana stands on firm ground; renouncing all, he is truly called ‘calmed.’ – Sutta Nipata

Not up in the air, nor in the middle of the sea, nor going into a cleft in the mountains —nowhere on earth— is a spot to be found where you could stay & escape your evil deed. – Dhammapada [9]
