Bhagavan Sri Ram had revealed universal truth at many junctures in the Ramayana and also in the Yoga Vasishta. Here are few quotes of Sri Rama
A frog caught by a serpent, while sitting in the latter’s mouth with half its body already swallowed, puts out its tongue and tries to catch hold of the small flies that happen to come near it. Similarly man, even when he is already caught by the serpent of Time, searches for sense enjoyments which are transitory. He works hard day and night undergoing much trouble to get them.
If you have patience, then you will never have any enemy.
The mind is never satisfied even when it has an object of desire in its grasp, just as a pot that leaks is never filled with any quantity of water.
There is nothing to be found on earth, big or small, of which Time does not make an end.
