Of all attachments and desires, none is more extreme than lust.
With lust as a desire, its greatness has no other,
Fortunately, there is only one [of its kind]!
If there are two similar desires,
of all humans under the heavens [in the world],
no one would be able to cultivate the path!

– The Buddha
(Sutra of Forty-Two Sections:
Twenty-Fourth Section)

爱欲莫甚於色。色之为欲,其大无外,赖有一矣。
若使二同,普天之人,无能为道者矣。

– 佛陀 (四十二章经: 第二十四章)
