Just as a bird, wherever it goes, flies with its wings as its only burden, so too, the bhikkhu becomes content with robes to protect his body and with almsfood to maintain his stomach, and wherever he goes he sets out taking only these with him. Possessing this aggregate of noble virtue, he experiences within himself a bliss that is blameless.
—Gautama Buddha, Majjhima Nikaya, as translated by B. Nanamoli and B. Bodhi (1995), Sutta 51, Verse 15, p. 450 (Wikiquote)
