The Dhammapada is one of the primary collections of teachings attributed to the Buddha. It has 423 verses in 26 different categories. According to tradition the verses are answers to questions put to the Buddha on various occasions.
Better than a thousand hollow words is one word that brings peace
Greater in battle than the man who would conquer a thousand men, is he who would conquer just one - himself
Conquer the angry man be love, conquer the ill-natured man by goodness, conquer the miser with generosity, conquer the liar with truth
To avoid all evil to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind - this is the teaching of the Buddhas
