Buddha quotes

buddha

After listening to my friend’s amazing Buddhist stories from her trip to Thailand last week and then writing my Qwotwitters2 page yesterday, I want to take some time to write some more quotes but ones said by Buddha. It’s a great way to start your Monday, right?

The following Buddha quotes are from brainyquote.com

Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.
The mind is everything. What you think you become.
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.

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.

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

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

Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.
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.

You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.

A jug fills drop by drop.
The wise ones fashioned speech with their thought, sifting it as grain is sifted through a sieve.

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

Have a great day,
