Foreword How does a man begin the building of a house?
But working and living are not separate; they are but two aspects of character, of life. He must begin by facing the starter and toeing the mark, and even then a good start is important if he is to win. He lives in a continual fever of attack and defence, and has no knowledge of the quiet peace of an equal mind. What is a wise man but one who thinks carefully, acts calmly, and lives consistently?
If one does not know what is wrong and how to avoid it, how can he know what is right and how to practise it?
The giving of money is the smallest part of liberality. It is not enough that an action is prompted by a good impulse or intention; it must arise in thoughtful consideration if it is to be a true action; and the man who wishes to be permanently happy in himself and a power for good to others must concern himself only with true actions.
It is only by increasing in thoughtfulness that a man can come to understand the nature of actions, and can, thereby, acquire the power of always doing that which is right.
It means not cheating or overcharging another. We feel this is more then enough content to evaluate the benefits and quality of this website. The right-doer will avoid those acts of personal pleasure and gratification which by their nature bring annoyance, pain, or suffering to others, no matter how insignificant those actions may appear to be.
What is a wise man but one who thinks carefully, acts calmly, and lives consistently?
At the age of 15 his father, a businessman, was robbed and murdered so he had to leave school to work full-time in several British manufacturing firms to help support the family.
The impure man is swept helplessly away on the waves of passion; the pure man guides himself into the harbour of rest.
It is because slander is such a common vice that it can work the suffering and injury that it does.
