    I am sure to become old; I cannot avoid aging.
    I am sure to become ill; I cannot avoid illness.
    I am sure to die; I cannot avoid death.
    I must be separated and parted from all that is dear and beloved to me.
    I am the owner of my actions, heir of my actions, actions are the womb (from which I have sprung), actions are my relations, actions are my protection. Whatever actions I do, good or bad, of these I shall become their heir.

    - the Buddhist discourse, "Upajjhatthana Sutta" ("Subjects for Contemplation")
