The four noble truths



The First Noble Truth
Unsatisfactoriness and suffering exist and are universally experienced.
The Second Noble Truth
Desire and attachment are the causes of unsatisfactoriness and suffering.
The Third Noble Truth
There is an end to unsatisfactoriness and suffering.
The Fourth Noble Truth
The end can be attained by journeying on the Noble Eightfold Path.

The Four Noble truths are expressed in many ways when written down, I really like your way. It seems to capture more of the essence of dhamma than others I have read.
