“Just as a line drawn on water with a stick will quickly vanish and will not last long; even so, brahmins, is human life like a line drawn on water. It is short, limited, and brief; it is full of suffering. One should do good and live a pure life; for none who is born can escape death.”
~ The Buddha
AN 7:70

The Life of the Buddha: Acording to the Pali Canon

Venerable Bhikkhu Nanamoli

This book pieces together the chronological story of the Buddha’s life strictly from the standpoint of the Pali Cannon.  More recent translations of the text can be found individually, but this is the most comprehensive anthology of those relating to the Buddha’s path to enlightenment and his long life teaching the Dhamma.
