Babies and Bath Water

I shall never be ashamed of citing a bad if the line is good. -Seneca.

In other words, good Dhamma is everywhere if we know how to look (I’m paraphrasing the Venerable Ajahn Chah here). I have been thinking of the gist of this quote for the past few days but was only successful in tracking it down today. Since it is Ramadhan again, I find myself trying to find gems of Dhamma in the teachings of the prophets and imams of Islam. And, truth be told, there are many if you know where to look. All of which is to say, that you shouldn’t throw the baby out with the bath water.
