- Thích Nh?t H?nh100
◆ An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.
◆ On the contrary, Subhuti, those Bodhisattvas who, when these words of the sutra are being taught, will find even one single thought of serene faith, will be such as have honoured many hundreds of thousands of Buddhas, such as have planted their roots
◆ We could say that meditation doesn't have a reason or doesn't have a purpose. In this respect it's unlike almost all other things we do except perhaps making music and dancing. When we make music we don't do it in order to reach a certain point, such as the end of the composition. If that were the purpose of music then obviously the fastest players would be the best. Also, when we are dancing we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as in a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, as when we play music the playing itself is the point. And exactly the same thing is true in meditation. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment.
- Alan Watts99
◆ We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
◆ Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful.
◆ Do not think of how big the universe is, it will merely hurt your head.
◆ I am a simple Buddhist monk.
- Dalai Lama99
◆ Neither from itself nor from another, Nor from both, Nor without a cause, Does anything whatever, anywhere arise.
◆ In Buddhism we have relative truth and absolute truth.
- Dalai Lama99
◆ We live in illusion and the appearance of things. There is a reality. We are that reality. When you understand this, you see that you are nothing, and being nothing, you are everything. That is all.
- Kalu Rinpoche99
◆ Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.
◆ There is nothing in Christianity or Buddhism that quite matches the sympathetic unselfishness of an oyster
- H H Munro99
◆ Neither fire nor wind, birth nor death can erase our good deeds.
◆ 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.
