"He who sees Dependent Origination, sees the Dhamma; he who sees the Dhamma, sees Dependent Origination." MN 28

Everything else in the Dhamma can be derived from that (impermanence, kamma, compassion, anatta, etc.)
"Dispositions of the mind, like limbs of the body, acquire strength by exercise." --Thomas Jefferson

I wish I'd thought of that. :jumping:
