“The one in whom no longer exist the craving and thirst that perpetuate becoming; how could you track that Awakened one, trackless, and of limitless range.”

From the Dhammapada, verse 180:

“The one in whom no longer exist the craving and thirst that perpetuate becoming; how could you track that Awakened one, trackless, and of limitless range?”
The Buddha

“How could you track that Awakened one, trackless, and of limitless range?” The Buddha

“If they are neither traceable in the Discourses nor verifiable by the Discipline, one must conclude thus: ‘Certainly, this is not the Blessed One’s utterance’“ The Buddha

Without approval and without scorn, but carefully studying the sentences word by word, one should trace them in the Discourses and verify them by the Discipline. If they are neither traceable in the Discourses nor verifiable by the Discipline, one must conclude thus: ‘Certainly, this is not the Blessed One’s utterance; this has been misunderstood by that bhikkhu — or by that community, or by those elders, or by that elder.’ In that way, bhikkhus, you should reject it.

This is from the Mahaparinibbana Sutta.

“‘As I am, so are these. As are these, so am I.’ Drawing the parallel to yourself, neither kill nor get others to kill.” The Buddha

This is a genuine quote from the Buddhist scriptures, said to have been uttered by the Buddha himself:

As are these, so am I.’
Drawing the parallel to yourself,
neither kill nor get others to kill.

“All tremble at violence; all fear death. Putting oneself in the place of another, one should not kill nor cause another to kill.” The Buddha

All tremble at violence; all fear death.
Putting oneself in the place of another,
one should not kill nor cause another to kill.

“Therefore, bhikkhus, you should train yourselves thus: ‘We will develop and cultivate the liberation of mind by lovingkindness, make it our vehicle, make it our basis, stabilize it, exercise ourselves in it, and fully perfect it.’ Thus should you train yourselves.”
