You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.
Buddha
It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.
Buddha
With fools, there is no companionship. Rather than to live with men who are selfish, vain, quarrelsome, and obstinate, let a man walk alone.
Buddha
To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one's own in the midst of abundance.
Buddha
I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.
Buddha
Of those beings who live in ignorance, shut up and confined, as it were, in an egg, I have first broken the eggshell of ignorance and alone in the universe obtained the most exalted, universal Buddhahood.
Buddha
Let my skin and sinews and bones dry up, together with all the flesh and blood of my body! I welcome it! But I will not move from this spot until I have attained the supreme and final wisdom.
Buddha
Unity can only be manifested by the Binary. Unity itself and the idea of Unity are already two.
Buddha
The virtues, like the Muses, are always seen in groups. A good principle was never found solitary in any breast.
Buddha
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
Buddha
Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
Buddha
A woman of the world is anxious to exhibit her form and shape, whether walking, standing, sitting, or sleeping. Even when represented as a picture, she desires to captivate with the charms of her beauty and, thus, to rob men of their steadfast heart.
Buddha
I was born into the world as the king of truth for the salvation of the world.
Buddha
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
Buddha
When one has the feeling of dislike for evil, when one feels tranquil, one finds pleasure in listening to good teachings; when one has these feelings and appreciates them, one is free of fear.
Buddha
The wise ones fashioned speech with their thought, sifting it as grain is sifted through a sieve.
Buddha
Without health life is not life; it is only a state of langour and suffering - an image of death.
Buddha
Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.
Buddha
Charity bestowed upon those who are worthy of it is like good seed sown on a good soil that yields an abundance of fruits. But alms given to those who are yet under the tyrannical yoke of the passions are like seed deposited in a bad soil. The passions of the receiver of the alms choke, as it were, the growth of merits.
Buddha
To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.
Buddha
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
Buddha
We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
Buddha
