A discussion on all aspects of Theravāda Buddhism
I heard a talk by a teacher that quoted something from the Pali Canon, to the effect of:
"A person's worst enemy is an untrained mind.
A person's greatest friend is a well-trained mind."
I can't find any sutta references. Can anybody think of any? Perhaps Dhammapada?
It sounds so familiar I feel like I'm missing something obvious.
"Dispositions of the mind, like limbs of the body, acquire strength by exercise." --Thomas Jefferson
