Words in the Weeds

A whiff …

As a beautiful flower that is full of hue but lacks fragrance, even so fruitless is the well-spoken word of one who does not practice it.

from The Dharmapada in Walpola Rahula What the Buddha Taught

A further sniff …

Every flower has a scent. As humans we may not be able to smell them all. But in time we can smell the rotting flowers.

And so for day 2958
