Buddhist Thought of the Day

In one who
has gone the full distance,
is free from sorrow,
is fully released
in all respects,
has abandoned all bonds:
no fever is found.

The mindful keep active,
don't delight in settling back.
They renounce every home,
every home,
like swans taking off from a lake.
Dhammapada, 7, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
