"It is said that there are only two tragedies in life: not getting what one wants, and getting it."
—Bhante Gunaratana, from Eight Mindful Steps to Happiness
"How, dear sir, did you cross the flood?"
"By not halting, friend, and by not straining I crossed the flood. When I came to a standstill, friend, then I sank; when I struggled, then I got swept away. It is in this way, friend, that by not halting and by not straining, I crossed the flood."
—The Buddha, from Connected Discourses of the Buddha
