By self alone is evil done, by self alone does one suffer.
By self alone is evil left undone, by self alone does one obtain Salvation.
Salvation and Perdition depend upon self; no man can save another.

Simply talking a lot
doesn’t maintain the Dhamma.
Whoever although he’s heard next to nothing,
sees Dhamma through his body,
is not heedless of Dhamma:
he’s one who maintains the Dhamma.

– Dhammapada [259]
