Grant yourself a moment of peace, and you will understand
how foolishly you have scurried about.
Learn to be silent, and you will notice that
you have talked too much.
Be kind, and you will realize
that your judgment of others was too severe.
and you will soon arrive.
-- Chinese proverb
(as quoted in "Buddha Is As Buddha Does," by Lama Surya Das)
