But one who has directly known and fully understood contempt, and who has detached his mind from it and abandoned it, is capable of destroying suffering." Humankind is possessed by contempt, Bound by contempt and delighted with being; Not fully understanding contempt, They come again to renewal of being. But those who have abandoned contempt, And by destroying contempt are freed, Have conquered the bondage of contempt And overcome all suffering. 45/105 Itivuttaka Khuddhaka It.007 contempt
