Valliya (Thag 2.24) {Thag 167-168}  

What needs to be done with firm persistence, what needs to be done by someone who hopes for Awakening, that I will do. I will not fail. See: persistence & striving! You show me the path: straight, coming ashore in the Deathless. I, through sagacity, will reach it, know it, as the stream of the Ganges, the sea.
