Gautama Buddha Motivational Quotations:

  • “Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.”

  •  “Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.”

  •  “Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.”

  •  “Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”

  •  “What we think, we become.”

  •  “To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.”

  •  “No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”

  •  “You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.”

  •  “Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely.”

  •  “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.”

  •  “Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others.”

  •  “We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”

  • “To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”

  •  “You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”

  •  “Those who are free of resentful thoughts surely find peace.”

  •  “It is better to travel well than to arrive.”

 “Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.”

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.”

  •  “Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.”

  •  “There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.”

  •  “The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows.”

  •  “Better than worshiping gods is obedience to the laws of righteousness.”

  •  “The foot feels the foot when it feels the ground.”

  •  “Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.”

  •  “Unity can only be manifested by the Binary. Unity itself and the idea of Unity are already two.”

  •  “Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule.”

  •  “Chaos is inherent in all compounded things. Strive on with diligence.”

  •  “He who loves 50 people has 50 woes; he who loves no one has no woes.”

  •  “I was born into the world as the king of truth for the salvation of the world.”

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

  •  “With fools, there is no companionship. Rather than to live with men who are selfish, vain, quarrelsome, and obstinate, let a man walk alone.”

  •  “To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one's own in the midst of abundance.”

  •  “All wrong-doing arises because of mind. If mind is transformed can wrong-doing remain?”

    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.”

  •  “Virtue is persecuted more by the wicked than it is loved by the good.”

  •  “He who walks in the eightfold noble path with unswerving determination is sure to reach Nirvana.”

  •  “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.”

  •  “The virtues, like the Muses, are always seen in groups. A good principle was never found solitary in any breast.”

  •  “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.”

  •  “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?”
