From craving arises sorrow, from craving arises fear, but he who is freed from craving has no sorrow and certainly no fear.

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.

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on children, people, sensuality, wives, world, iron, fetter, trinkets, besotted, hankering, desire, break, renounce, free, longing, and abandon

The wise say that it is not an iron, wooden or fiber fetter which is a strong one, but the besotted hankering after trinkets, children and wives, that, say the wise, is the strong fetter. It drags one down, and loose as it feels, it is hard to break. Breaking this fetter, people renounce the world, free from longing and abandoning sensuality.
