Dhamma Quotes that can fit in facebook profile bio?

Post by dylanj » Sun Jan 14, 2018 7:45 am

101 character. bonus points if a reference/citation can fit
susukhaṃ vata nibbānaṃ,
sammā­sambud­dha­desitaṃ;
asokaṃ virajaṃ khemaṃ,
yattha dukkhaṃ nirujjhatī


Oh! extinction is so very blissful,
As taught by the One Rightly Self-Awakened:
Sorrowless, stainless, secure;
Where suffering all ceases


etaṁ santaṁ etaṁ panītaṁ yadidaṁ sabbasaṅkhārasamatho sabbūpadhipaṭi nissaggo taṇhakkhayo virāgo nirodho nibbānaṁ

This is peaceful, this is excellent, that is: the stilling of all fabrications, the relinquishment of all attachments, the destruction of craving, detachment, cessation, extinction.

There is a similar topic on the SuttaCentral forum: Some memorable sutta quotes in less than 140 characters, please!
You might find some that fit the bill (<101 characters) there.
