Added the Nakhasikhā Sutta, on the simile of the dust on the top of a fingernail. 

There are several discourses that use this simile, comparing how much suffering remains for a Stream-winner compared to the suffering that remains for worldlings, or how few beings gain rebirth in the fortunate realms of existence.
