Giving Up Victory and Defeat

Victory breeds hatred,
The defeated live in pain.
Happily the peaceful live,
Giving up victory and defeat.
— Dhp. 201


The above is a verse from the Dhammapada (sayings of Shakyamuni Buddha) that I came across today, prompted by my own musings about Buddhism yesterday. Wise words.
