Home » Haikus » Drop By Drop

Do not make light of your failings,
Saying, ‘What are they to me?’
A jug fills drop by drop.
So the fool becomes full of folly.

Do not belittle your virtues,
Saying, ‘They are nothing.’
A jug fills drop by drop.
So the wise man becomes brimful of virtue.

– The Buddha (Dhammapada)
