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]

Take heed that when effort is too strenuous it leads to strain and when too slack to laziness. So make a firm determination that you will adopt the middle way, not allowing yourself to struggle or to slacken, but recognizing that faith, energy, mindfulness, concentration, and wisdom are the fruits of a calm and equable way.

To travel with the unawakened makes the journey long and hard and is as painful as travelling with an enemy. But the company of the wise is as pleasant as meeting with friends.

Follow the wise, the intelligent, and the awakened. Follow them as the moon follows the path of the stars.

Not even if it rained gold coins
would we have our sensual pleasures filled.
‘Stressful, they give little enjoyment’
knowing this, the wise one finds no delight
even in heavenly sensual pleasures.
He is one who delights in the ending of craving,
A disciple of the Rightly Self-Awakened One.

– Dhammapada [14]

If you’re respectful by habit,
Constantly honouring the worthy,
Four things increase:
Long life, beauty,
Happiness, strength.

– Dhammapada [8]
