One Thing

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
From “365 Bud­dha: Dai­ly Med­i­ta­tions,” edit­ed by Jeff Schmidt. Reprint­ed by arrange­ment with Tarcher/Putnam, a divi­sion of Pen­guin Put­nam Inc.

Yep, I have to agree with that one.
