Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him; 19 Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats ? 20 And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.
Pagina 154 - For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
Pagina 73 - On another occasion, when asked what was the greatest blessing, Buddha said : ' The succouring of mother and father, the cherishing of child and wife, and the following of a lawful calling, this is the greatest blessing.

Pagina viii - Il n'a pas été impeccable; il a vaincu les mêmes passions que nous combattons ; aucun ange de Dieu ne l'a conforté, si ce n'est sa bonne conscience ; aucun Satan ne l'a tenté, si ce n'est celui que chacun porte en son cœur.

Pagina xxiv - It may be said in favour of Buddhism that no philosophico-religious system has ever upheld, to an equal degree, the notions of a saviour and deliverer, and the necessity of his mission for procuring the salvation of man, in a Buddhist sense.
Pagina xxvi - Atheism, Immortality and Annihilation, involve infinite considerations, which, in my humble opinion, we are so little capable of thoroughly comprehending, that I, though a Theist, am unwilling to apply to a Buddhist a term which is held in reproach. The word Atheist is among us a word of reproach, and I do not like to apply it to those who, so far as I see, do not deny the existence of a God, but only reverentially abstain from defining that which it is impossible to comprehend.
Pagina 107 - Dhp.,' 162, 334, 340. is supposed to be speaking; and has already described the duties of a mendicant, which will be considered separately below (p. 156):— 18. 'Now I tell you of the life which a householder should lead, of the manner in which a disciple should conduct himself well. Such duties as are peculiar to the mendicants cannot be fulfilled by one who has a family. 19. ' Let him not destroy, or cause to be destroyed^ any lift at all, or sanction the acts of those who do so.
Pagina 21 - 'But we see neither the yoke, nor plough, nor ploughshare, nor goad, nor oxen, of the venerable Gautama. . . . "'Being questioned by us as to your ploughing, speak in such a manner as we may know of your ploughing.
Pagina 74 - ... religious life, aid rendered to relations, blameless acts, this is the greatest blessing. ' The abstaining from sins and the avoiding them, the eschewing of intoxicating drink, diligence in good deeds, reverence and humility, contentment and gratefulness, this is the greatest blessing.
Pagina xxix - The bleak wind of March Made her tremble and shiver; But not the dark arch, Or the black flowing river: Mad from life's history, Glad to death's mystery, Swift to be hurled Anywhere, anywhere Out of the world!
