- Dhammapada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu
Since reason is our most precious gift from God, we should do nothing to reduce its status or degrade it. Since reason should govern our conduct, we should allow nothing to govern it. Since reason is the sovereign over all human facilities, it should not be made subject to any other faculty.
- Razi, "Kitab al-Muluki"
It's never too late to start doing what is right.
