    Most precious things become valueless if they are broken, but if a diamond is cut into little pieces, each fragment, however small is still valuable. In this respect, the instructions on training the mind are like a diamond because, while it is most valuable to practice all the instructions on training the mind, it is still very worthwhile to practice just some of them.
