Love yourself and be mindful,
both day and night.
It is wise to know yourself,
before instructing others in self-knowledge.
Thus you defeat sorrow.
To truly know oneself
is the hardest of disciplines.
To straighten the crooked,
one must first straighten oneself.
Only then can you be a light unto others.
~The Dhammapada, verses 157 - 159
