TWQ Buddha Quotes

Avoid evil deeds as a man who loves life avoids poison.

To abstain from lying is essentially wholesome.

Every human being is the author of his own health or disease.

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

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 better to travel well than to arrive.

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.

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

The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.

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.

TWQ Buddha Quotes

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.

What do Buddha quotes teach us about action? Thoughts and ideas go further through action.

A jug fills drop by drop.

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

What we think, we become.

An idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea.

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

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

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.

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

TWQ Buddha Quotes

If you knew what I know about the power of giving you would not let a single meal pass without sharing it in some way.

You only lose what you cling to.

The past is already gone, the future is not yet here. There’s only one moment for you to live.

Learn this from water: loud splashes the brook but the oceans depth are calm.

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

The trouble is, you think you have time.

As you walk and eat and travel, be where you are. Otherwise you will miss most of your life.

Your work is to discover your work and then with all your heart to give yourself to it.

Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.

Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.

TWQ Buddha Quotes

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.

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

Have compassion for all beings, rich and poor alike; each has their suffering. Some suffer too much, others too little.

What do Buddha quotes teach us about anger and compassion? Rise above your anger through forgiveness and compassion, for yourself, and others.

Hatred does not cease through hatred at any time. Hatred ceases through love. This is an unalterable law.

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

Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.

To understand everything is to forgive everything.

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.

 

 

TWQ Buddha Quotes

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.

Every human being is the author of his own health or disease.

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

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.

The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.

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.

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

Without health life is not life; it is only a state of languor and suffering an image of death.

He who experiences the unity of life sees his own Self in all beings, and all beings in his own Self, and looks on everything with an impartial eye.

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

TWQ Buddha Quotes

Buddha Quotes on Happiness

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.

There is no path to happiness. Happiness is the path.

Happiness does not depend on what you have or who you are. It solely relies on what you think.

It is ridiculous to think that somebody else can make you happy or unhappy.

A disciplined mind brings happiness.

If with a pure mind a person speaks or acts, happiness follows them like a never-departing shadow.

Whatever is not yours: let go of it. Your letting go of it will be for your long-term happiness & benefit.

Whatever is not yours: let go of it. Your letting go of it will be for your long-term happiness & benefit.

The way to happiness is: keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, give much. Fill your life with love. Do as you would be done by.

TWQ Buddha Quotes

Buddha Quotes on Love

Love the whole world as a mother loves her only child.

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

Love is a gift of one’s inner most soul to another so both can be whole.

In the end these things matter most: How well did you love? How fully did you live? How deeply did you let go?

Hatred does not cease through hatred at any time. Hatred ceases through love. This is an unalterable law.

TWQ Buddha Quotes

Buddha Quotes on Karma

Not even death can wipe out our good deeds.

Just as one can make a lot of garlands from a heap of flowers, so man, subject to birth and death as he is, should make himself a lot of good karma.

When action comes out of nothing it creates no karma.

One who previously made bad karma, but who reforms and creates good karma, brightens the world like the moon appearing from behind a cloud.

Everything is based on mind, is led by mind, is fashioned by mind. If you speak and act with a polluted mind, suffering will follow you, as the wheels of the oxcart follow the footsteps of the ox.

TWQ Buddha Quotes

Buddha Quotes on Peace

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

The mind is everything. What you think you become.

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

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

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