Timeless Quotes from the Buddha

As a mother at the risk of her life

watches over her child,so let everyone

cultivate a boundlessly compassionate

mind towards all living beings.

It is a man’s own mind,

not his enemy or foe,

that lures him to evil ways.

To live a pure unselfish life,

one must count nothing as

one’s own in the midst of abundance.

Hatred does not cease by hatred,

but by love alone; this is an ancient

and eternal law.

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.

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.

We are what we think.

All that we are arises with our thoughts.

With our thoughts we make the world.

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.

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.

Even death is not to be feared

by one who has lived wisely.

There are two mistakes one

can make along the road to truth.

not going all the way,and not starting.

I loved the Timeless Quotes from the Buddha and decided to post it.
