Like one whose hair is on fire

Merely for their own sake, even those who long for liberation,
Make efforts like one whose hair is on fire.
Seeing this, for the sake of all beings, constant effort,
The source of excellent qualities, is the practice of a Bodhisattva.

— Gyalse Ngulchu Tokme Zangpo, 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva
