Effort Is Necessary To Avoid Suffering

Like a thoroughbred horse touched by the whip, be strenuous, be filled with spiritual yearning.
By faith and moral purity, by effort and meditation,
by investigation of the truth, by being rich in knowledge and virtue,
and by being mindful, destroy this unlimited suffering.
– Dhammapada X. Dandavagga: Violence :: Verse 144
