If you truly loved yourself, you could never hurt another.
Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule.
Doubt everything. Find your own light.
Imagine that every person in the world is enlightened but you. They are all your teachers, each doing just the right things to help you learn perfect patience, perfect wisdom, perfect compassion.
Buddha means awareness, the awareness of body and mind that prevents evil from arising in either.
Happiness comes when your work and words are of benefit to others.
If you propose to speak always ask yourself, is it true, is it necessary, is it kind.
Meditate. Live purely. Be quiet. Do your work with mastery. Like the moon, come out from behind the clouds! Shine
People with opinions just go around bothering one another.
The non permanent appearance of happiness and distress, and their disappearance in due course, are like the appearance and disappearance of summer and winter seasons.
This world-appearance is a confusion, even as the blueness of the sky is an optical illusion. I think it is better not to let the mind dwell on it, but to ignore it.
What you are is what you have been. What you’ll be is what you do now.
