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

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.

He is able who thinks he is able.

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.

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.

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

All that we are is the result of what we have thought.

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.

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

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

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.

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

The tongue like a sharp knife... Kills without drawing blood.

The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.

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

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.

A family is a place where minds come in contact with one another. If these minds love one another the home will be as beautiful as a flower garden. But if these minds get out of harmony with one another it is like a storm that plays havoc with the garden.

Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others.

As the flectcher whittles and makes straight his arrows, so the master directs his straying thoughts.

However many holy words you read, However many you speak, What good will they do you, If you do not act upon them?

Do not speak harshly to any one; those who are spoken to will answer thee in the same way. Angry speech is painful: blows for blows will touch thee.

All created things are impermanent. Strive on with diligence.

Hatred does not cease in this world by hating, but by not hating; this is an eternal truth.

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