Buddha quotes page 2

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

You will not be punished for your anger.
You will be punished by your anger.
Buddha

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly our whole life would change.
Buddha

Neither fire nor wind, birth nor death can erase our good deeds.
Buddha

It is easy to see the faults of others, but difficult to see once own faults. One shows the
faults of others like chaff winnowed in the wind, but one conceals one's own faults as a
cunning gambler conceals his dice.
Buddha

Nothing can harm you as much as your own thoughts unguarded.
Buddha

There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison
that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and
hurts; it is a sword that kills.
Buddha

What we think, we become.
Buddha

The tongue like a sharp knife. It kills without drawing blood.
Buddha

The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you,
depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.
Buddha

Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.
Buddha

Those who are free of resentful thoughts surely find peace.
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.
Buddha

Do not look for a sanctuary in anyone except your self.
Buddha

Set your heart on doing good. Do it over and over again, and you will be filled with joy.
Buddha

There is no path to happiness: happiness is the path.
Buddha

All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil
thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him,
like a shadow that never leaves him.
Buddha

If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.
Buddha

If a traveller does not meet with one who is his better, or his equal, let him firmly keep to his
solitary journey; there is no companionship with a fool.
Buddha

As a solid rock is not shaken by the wind, the wise are not moved by praise or blame.
Buddha

To force oneself to believe and to accept a thing without understanding is political, and not
spiritual or intellectual.
Buddha

Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely.
Buddha

If we fail to look after others when they need help, who will look after us?
Buddha

The greatest prayer is patience.
Buddha

Kindness should become the natural way of life, not the exception.
Buddha

To insist on a spiritual practice that served you in the past is to carry the raft on your back
after you have crossed the river.
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

It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.
Buddha

Believe not because some old manuscripts are produced, believe not because it is your
national belief, believe not because you have been made to believe from your childhood, but
reason truth out, and after you have analyzed it, then if you find it will do good to one and
all, believe it, live up to it and help others live up to it.
Buddha

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

Rage is a powerful energy that with diligent practice can be transformed into fierce
compassion. However much we disagree with our enemies, our task is to identify with them.
They too feel justified in their point of view.
Buddha

Speak the truth, do not become angered and give when asked, even be it a little. By these
three conditions one goes to the presence of the gods.
Buddha

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.
Buddha

I never see what has been done; I only see what remains to be done.
Buddha
