The Good

Good people walk on whatever befall, the good do not prattle, longing for pleasure; whether touched by happiness or sorrow wise people never appear elated or depressed. (Unknown)

Everywhere, truly, those of integrity stand apart. They, the good, don’t chatter in hopes of favor or gains. When touched now by pleasure, now pain, the wise give no sign of high or low. (Thanissaro Bhikkhu)

~ Dhammapada 6.83
