Zitat des Tages von Buddha:
A jug fills drop by drop.
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.
You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.
Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.
The mind is everything. What you think you become.
The virtues, like the Muses, are always seen in groups. A good principle was never found solitary in any breast.
You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
Let my skin and sinews and bones dry up, together with all the flesh and blood of my body! I welcome it! But I will not move from this spot until I have attained the supreme and final wisdom.
What is the appropriate behavior for a man or a woman in the midst of this world, where each person is clinging to his piece of debris? What's the proper salutation between people as they pass each other in this flood?
Those who are free of resentful thoughts surely find peace.
Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.
Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.
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.
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.
The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows.
We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.
Chaos is inherent in all compounded things. Strive on with diligence.
Better than worshiping gods is obedience to the laws of righteousness.
All wrong-doing arises because of mind. If mind is transformed can wrong-doing remain?
Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.
Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill.
Virtue is persecuted more by the wicked than it is loved by the good.
Unity can only be manifested by the Binary. Unity itself and the idea of Unity are already two.
He who loves 50 people has 50 woes; he who loves no one has no woes.
Without health life is not life; it is only a state of langour and suffering - an image of death.
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.
When one has the feeling of dislike for evil, when one feels tranquil, one finds pleasure in listening to good teachings; when one has these feelings and appreciates them, one is free of fear.
To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.
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.
To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one's own in the midst of abundance.
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.
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
What we think, we become.
The foot feels the foot when it feels the ground.
