I was reading in the Dhammapada the other day ( very much like Proverbs in the Bible ) and this refrain struck me :
“Those who would irrigate the land
Bring the water wherever they choose.
Arrowsmiths fashion arrows.
Carpenters shape wood.
The virtuous mold themselves. ”
Don’t you think that if the Buddha had quilted that he would have added that quilters add texture or some such thing :)
