I was at BeliefNet to read an article earlier this week and signed up for a bunch of daily email messages on a whim. I was somewhat curious as to what kind of messages I’d get as Buddhist and Hindu wisdom, or the daily Torah message. This was in my inbox:
Monks, I say there is no wicked deed that may not be committed by…the human being who has transgressed in one thing. What one thing? I mean, the intentional uttering of a falsehood.—tivuttaka

Yep, I have to agree with that one.
