A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on ignorance, mind, pain, thought, rebirth, cycle, builder, house, rafter, ridge-pole, free, active, craving, freedom, liberation, and nirvana

I have passed in ignorance through a cycle of many rebirths, seeking the builder of the house. Continuous rebirth is a painful thing. But now, housebuilder, I have found you out. You will not build me a house again. All your rafters are broken, your ridge-pole shattered. My mind is free from active thought, and has made an end of craving.

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on absence, fear, pain, and sorrow

Never have anything to do with likes and dislikes. The absence of what one likes is painful, as is the presence of what one dislikes. Therefore don't take a liking to anything. To lose what one likes is hard, but there are no bonds for those who have no likes and dislikes. From preference arises sorrow, from preference arises fear, but he who is freed from preference has no sorrow and certainly no fear.
