“Good people shine from afar, like the snowy mountains; bad people are concealed, like arrows shot by night. If a man by causing pain to others, wishes to obtain pleasure for himself, he, entangled in the bonds of selfishness, will never be free from hatred. Let a man overcome anger by love, let him overcome evil by good; let him overcome the greedy by liberality, the liar by truth!”

-The Dhammapada, XVII
