there are some on buddhanet don't know how good they are in respect to other renderings of the stories but I know they are there.
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

"Others will misconstrue reality due to their personal perspectives, doggedly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our own personal perspectives, nor doggedly holding onto them, but will discard them easily. This effacement shall be done."

There's a limited selection of them here...Jataka Tales of the Buddha
Retold by Ken & Visakha Kawasakihttp://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/auth ... index.html
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)Exalted in mind, just open and clearly aware, the recluse trained in the ways of the sages:
One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7Dharma Wheel (Mahayana / Vajrayana forum)
