Today's Quote: From the Metta Sutta

Metta is Pali for "unconditional lovingkindness." (Sanskrit equivalent: Maitri.)

Today's quote consists of the first three verses of a translation of the Metta Sutta freely available on the web:

This is what should be accomplished by the one who is wise, who seeks the good and has obtained peace:

Let one be strenuous, upright and sincere, without pride, easily contented and joyous;

Let one not be submerged by the things of the world. Let one not take upon oneself the burden of riches.
