I am not angry with my bile and other humors— Fertile source of pain and suffering! Why then take offense at living beings? They too are impelled by circumstance.

SHANTIDEVA (685-763)
Bodhicaryavatara: The Way of the Bodhisattva, op. cit. Chap. 5, verses 12-13, and Chap. 6, verses 1-3, 10, 22, 41, 107-8.
