  • You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
  • 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.
  • Meditate. Live purely. Be quiet. Do your work with mastery. Like the moon, come out from behind the clouds! Shine.
  • Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what hold you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.
  • The thought manifests as the word. The word manifests as the deed. The deed develops into habit. And the habit hardens into character. So watch the thought and its ways with care. And let it spring from love, born out of concern for all beings.
  • The words we speak should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill.
  • What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: Our life is the creation of our mind.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.
  • In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.
  • The mind is everything. What you think you become.
  • The tongue like a sharp knife... Kills without drawing blood.
  • The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
  • You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
  • You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
