Dhammapada 60 [Khuddaka Nikaya]

1 - Annatarapurisa Vatthu

Digha jagarato ratti, digham santassa yojanam;
digho balana samsaro, saddhammam avijanatam.
60: Long is the night to one who is wakeful; long is (the journey of) one yojana to the traveller who is tired; long is samsara (round of rebirths) to the fool, who is ignorant of the true Dhamma (the Teaching of the Buddha).

Dhamma Info (15)

Instruction for Quick Gaining of Dhamma

Act like a blind person, although one's eye-sight is good.
Act like a deaf person, although one's hearing is good.
Act like a dumb person, although one is a good speaker.
Act like a weak person, although one has full of energy.
If practice is done in this manner, the dhamma shall be gained.
Mottos, by Ashin Kundalabhivamsa.
