Gautama Buddha

  •  “It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.”
  •  “It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe,  that lures him to evil ways.”

  •  “Without health life is not life; it is only a state of langour and suffering - an image of death.”

  •  “I never see what has been done; I only see what remains to be done.”

  •  “We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.”

    Gautama Buddha

  •  “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.”

  •  “I am not the first Buddha who came upon Earth, nor shall I be the last. In due time, another Buddha will arise in the world - a Holy One, a supremely enlightened One, endowed with wisdom in conduct, auspicious, knowing the universe, an incomparable leader of men, a master of angels and mortals.”

  •  “A jug fills drop by drop.”

  •  “However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?”

  •  “He who gives away shall have real gain. He who subdues himself shall be free; he shall cease to be a slave of passions. The righteous man casts off evil, and by rooting out lust, bitterness, and illusion do we reach Nirvana.”

  •  “The foolish man conceives the idea of 'self.' The wise man sees there is no ground on which to build the idea of 'self;' thus, he has a right conception of the world and well concludes that all compounds amassed by sorrow will be dissolved again, but the truth will remain.”

  •  “To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.”

  •  “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.”

  •  “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.”

  •  “In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.”

  •  “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.”

  •  “What is the appropriate behavior for a man or a woman in the midst of this world, where each person is clinging to his piece of debris? What's the proper salutation between people as they pass each other in this flood?”
