Dukkha and Anatta

“[…] I didn’t give a goddamn about the mythology and all the names and national flavors of Buddhism, but was just interested in the first of Shakyamuni’s four noble truths, All life is suffering. And to an extent interested in the third, The suppression of suffering can be achieved, which I didn’t quite believe was possible then.”

(Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums)
