夫为道者,如被干草,火来须避。
道人见欲,必当远之。

— 释迦牟尼佛
《四十二章经》: 第三十章

Those as practitioners of the path, are like those who wear dry grass [i.e hay]. When fire comes, it must be avoided. Practitioners of the path, when seeing the desired, certainly should stay far from it.

— Śākyamuni Buddha
(Sūtra Of 42 Sections: 30th Section)
