Does anyone hava a sutta name for this quote?


“What do you think about this?” said the Lord. “What is the purpose of a mirror?” “It is for the purpose of reflection, sir”, replied Rahula. “Even so, an action to be done by body, speech or mind should only be done after careful reflection.”

The furniture may be exquisite,
And the bars of solid gold,
But once the bird realizes that the cage is a cage,
It finds within that cage
No joy
