Where is there enough leather
To cover the surface of the Earth?
But just having leather on the soles of one’s feet
Is the same as covering the whole Earth.

In the same way, it is not possible
To control all external events;
But, if I simply control my mind,
What need is there to control other things?

Shantideva - “Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life”
