It looks like the Pali Text Society has made available the entire English translation of the Sutta Pitaka in digital format for free!

Metta,

If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7

Best to be aware that many of these translations are around eighty to a hundred years old - the language and grammar can be a little different to what you are used to.

With metta,
