A Quote by Dag Hammarskjöld on devil, house, empty, door, and guest

The devils enter uninvited when the house stands empty. For other kinds of guests, you have to first open the door.

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)
