Quote Number: 189
Source Notes: Attributed to Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha. There is no extant original source with a similar quote. It is likely derived from a translation of the Dhammapada by T. Byrom in 1993. The quote has no source in the Pali Canon (i.e. the standard collection of Theravadan Buddisht tradition) and is likely either fabricated or comes from a non-canonical version of the Dhammapada. The closet quote comes from the Majjhima Nikaya. That quote can be found here.
