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 lust,
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 the underlying tendency to desire for being,
of the underlying tendency to ignorance;
this is the end
of resorting to rods and weapons,
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
