This Is Not The Entry I Intended To Enter Here

When I want to move
or to speak,
first I shall examine my state of mind,
and firmly act in a suitable way

Whenever my mind becomes attached
or angry,
I shall not reacvt, nor shall I speak;
I shall remain mum and unmoved like a tree.

     -- Shantidevi (8th century Buddhist)
