“The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.”
– Helen Keller
Once bitten by a snake, he/she is scared all his/her life at the mere sight of a rope.
– Chinese Saying
Mind is like the wood or stone from which a person carves an image. If he carves a dragon or a tiger, and seeing it fears it, he is like a stupid person creating a picture of hell and then afraid to face it. If he does not fear it, then his unnecessary thoughts will vanish. Part of the mind produces sight, sound, taste, odor and sensibility, and from them raises greed, anger and ignorance with all their accompanying likes and dislikes.
