One with many misgivings, yet does not personally repents, to instantly cease this mind, transgressions will come to engulf oneself; like water returning to the sea, gradually becoming deeper and broader.

If one has misgivings, who personally understands and knows their wrong, corrects the evil and practises good, the transgressions will self-eradicate; like a sick person getting to sweat, gradually reducing seriousness of the sickness.

— The Buddha
