    All beings by nature are Buddha,
    as ice by nature is water;
    apart from water there is no ice,
    apart from beings,
    no Buddha.

    D&C 38:16 -. . . I am no respecter of persons.
    The Bhagavad Gita – . . . none are less dear to me and none are more dear.

    2 Nephi 26:22 – [Y]ea, and [the devil] leadeth them by the neck with a flaxen cord, until he bindeth them with his strong cords forever.
    The Dhammapada – Little by little a person becomes evil, as a water pot is filled by drops of water.

    If somebody borrows twenty bucks from you, and you never see that person again, it was probably worth the money.
