The Dhammapada ("Imprint of the Dharma")
Chapter 20, The Path
273. Of all paths, the Noble Eightfold Path is best; of all truths, the Four Noble Truths are best; of all things, passionlessness is best; of all beings, the Seeing One (the Buddha) is best.
274. This is the path; there is none other for the purification of insight. Tread this path and bewilder Mara [Death].
275. Treading this path makes an end of suffering. Having discovered how to draw out the thorn of lust, I make known the path.
276. You yourselves must strive. Buddhas only point the way. Those meditative ones who tread the path are released from the bonds of Mara.
277. "All conditioned things are impermanent" -- when one sees this with wisdom, one turns away from suffering. This is the path of purification.
278. "All conditioned things are unsatisfactory" -- when one sees this with wisdom, one turns away from suffering. This is the path of purification.
279. "All things are not-self" -- when one sees this with wisdom, one turns away from suffering. This is the path of purification.
280. The idler who does not make an effort when there is opportunity. Though young and strong, one is full of sloth, with a mind full of vain thoughts -- such an indolent person does not find the path to liberating wisdom.
281. Let one be watchful of speech, well controlled in mind, and not commit any unskillful deed in body. Let one purify these three courses of karma, and win the path made known by the Great Sage.
282. Wisdom springs from meditation; without meditation, wisdom wanes. Having known the two paths of progress and decline, let one so conduct oneself that wisdom may increase.
283. Cut down the forest (lust), but not the tree. From the forest springs fear. Having cut down the forest and the underbrush (desire), be passionless, O meditators!
284. For so long as the underbrush of lust, even the most subtle, of one towards another is not cut down, the mind is in bondage, like the suckling calf to its mother.
285. Cut off attachment as one plucks an autumn lotus. Cultivate the path to peace, nirvana, as made known by the Exalted One. More
