IF NOTHING IS FOUND THERE TO DELIGHT IN,...
The Buddha once said this to the Bhikkhus:
"Bhikkhus, as to the source through which perceptions
and notions tinged by mental proliferation beset a man:
if nothing is found there to delight in, welcome and hold to,
this is the end

of the underlying tendency to aversion,
of the underlying tendency to views,
of the underlying tendency to doubt,
of the underlying tendendy to conceit,

of quarrels, brawls, disputes, recrimination, malice and false speech;
here these evil unwholesome states cease without remainder."

From "Madhupindika Sutta" of the Buddha
translated by Bhikkhu Nanamoli and Bhikkhu Bodhi
