we shall overcome

You should overcome anger by not getting angry;

You should overcome evil by doing good;

You should overcome stinginess by sharing;

And you should overcome liars by telling the truth.

~Buddha's Teachings
  The Dhammapada
  Quoted in honor of his 2564th birthday, April 30
  (In many East Asian countries
 Buddha's Birth is celebrated on the 8th day of the 4th month
 in the Chinese lunar calendar)
