Buddha quotes

Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta, the founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C.

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

He is able who thinks he is able.

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.

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

A man should first direct himself in the way he should go. Only then should he instruct others.

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

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.

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

Born out of concern for all beings.

All things appear and disappear because of the concurrence of causes and conditions. Nothing ever exists entirely alone; everything is in relation to everything else.
