Here is the Dhammapada verse we learned:
Durāvāsā gharā dukhā;
Tasmā na caddhagū siyā,
302. Becoming a monk is difficult—it is hard to enjoy the monk life. Household life is also difficult—it is painful. Living with people who have different opinions is suffering. Wandering in the journey of rebirths is indeed suffering. Therefore, do not be a wanderer in saṁsāra; do not be a pursuer of suffering.
