"Now, o monks, the monk wisely reflecting partakes of his alms-food,

This, o monks, is knowing the measure in eating." (A. III. 16).

"How o monks, would it be possible for Nanda to lead the absolutely pure life of holiness, if he did not watch over his senses and did not know the measure in eating?" (A.VII.9).
