The Warrior Princess Xena said, "Right motion leaves no trace. Right speech contains no error. Right conduct benefits all."

Her apprentice Gabhopper asked, "Then please tell me, m'Lady, how can I be of right mind?"

"The sage's mind is like a fine net. No one escapes her notice. Nothing useful is wasted."

"So everyone has a role?"

"On my path the learned instruct without loving their students. The ignorant learn without loving their teachers."

"I shall never forget your words, m'Lady Xena."

"Remember my words but forget me. Unless you can erase all thoughts of your teacher from your mind, your thoughts will be clouded."
