Conquer anger
with lack of anger;
bad, with good;
stinginess, with generosity;
a liar, with truth.

But I say and I protest don’t stop your quest while anything further remains to be discovered or done. What further needs to be done? You must train yourselves, saying: ‘We will become unsullied in our conduct, brilliant and pure. We will neither exalt ourselves nor look down on anyone else.’

If a person does evil,
he shouldn’t do it again & again,
shouldn’t develop a penchant for it.
To accumulate evil
brings pain.

If a person makes merit,
he should do it again & again,
should develop a penchant for it.
To accumulate merit
brings ease.

– Dhammapada [9]

The Buddha said: ‘If outsiders speak against me, the Teaching or the Order, you should not be angry for that would prevent your own self-conquest. Similarly if they praise us. But you should find out what is false or true, and acknowledge the fact. And even in praise it is only of trifling matters that an unconverted man might speak of me.’

– Digha Nikaya
