Fingers walk the darkness down
Mind is on the midnight
Gather up the gold you've found
You fool, it's only moonlight.
If you try to take it home
Your hands will turn to butter
You better leave this dream alone
Try to find another. – Townes Van Zandt ‘Lungs’

Secure your own mask before assisting others. – NORTHWEST AIRLINES (Pre-Flight Instruction)

Early Buddhist Theory of Knowledge, by K.N. Jayatilleke

David Kalupahana, a student of Jayatilleke, expanded on a theme of empirical knowledge found in the Sabbasutta (SN. 35.23), with comparison to Nikāya and Āgama versions, not cited in Jayatilleke's work:

A Tract on Empiricism, by D.J. Kalupahana: Philosophy East and West, Vol. 19, No. 1 (Jan., 1969) pp.. 65-67

I was having problems with the above copy of 'Early Buddhist Theory of Knowledge" so here is another one from scribd...

http://www.scribd.com/doc/106810442/K-N ... -Knowledge
"I don't envision a single thing that, when developed & cultivated, leads to such great benefit as the mind. The mind, when developed & cultivated, leads to great benefit."

"I don't envision a single thing that, when undeveloped & uncultivated, brings about such suffering & stress as the mind. The mind, when undeveloped & uncultivated, brings about suffering & stress."
