"The Buddha taught that there are three principal characteristics of human existence:  impermanence, egolessness, and suffering or dissatisfaction.  According to the Buddha, the lives of all beings are marked by these three qualities.  Recognizing these qualities to be real and true in our own experience helps us to relax with things as they are." - The Places That Scare You: A Guide to Fearlessness in Difficult Times
