Thag 2.37
Sona Potiriyaputta
translated from the Pali by
Thanissaro Bhikkhu
It's not for sleeping, the night garlanded with zodiac stars. The night, for one who knows, is for staying awake. If I were to fall from my elephant's shoulder, and a tusker trampled me, death in battle would be better for me, than that I, defeated, survive.
