Quote:Things are simply the way they are. They don't give us suffering. Like a thorn: Does a sharp thorn give us suffering? No. It's simply a thorn. It doesn't give suffering to anybody. If 
we step on it, we suffer immediately. 
Why do we suffer? Because we 
stepped on it. So the suffering comes from us. - Ajahn Chah Quotes
