Just as the footprints of any creature...

Daily Buddhist Wisdom
Just as the footprints of any creature that walks the earth can be placed in the elephants footprint, which is the largest of all
--even so mindful attention is the one quality that ensures ease of mind at all times. Mindful attention causes beneficial thoughts that have not yet arisen to arise. It also causes harmful thoughts that have already arisen to vanish. In the one who is mindful, the good that is to be will be realized.
- Anguttara Nikaya
