“It seems as though the rivers of craving are running in every direction,” said Ajita, “How can we dam them and hold them back? What can we use to close the floodgates?” The Buddha said: “Any river can be stopped with the dam of mindfulness. Caring and thoughtfulness are the flood stoppers. With wisdom you can close the floodgate.”

– Sutta Nipata
