Happiness is the consequence of personal effort

 

I have found if you love life,
life will love you back.

Arthur Rubinstein


To give pleasure to a single heart by a single act
is better than a thousand heads
bowing in prayer.

Mahatma Gandhi


Cherish each hour of this day
for it can never return.

Og Mandino


Be master of your petty annoyances
and conserve your energies for the big, worthwhile things.
It isn't the mountain ahead that wears you out
it's the grain of sand in your shoe.

Robert Service


There is no failure
except in no longer trying.

Elbert Hubbard


If a person is confident enough in the way they feel,
whether it's an art form or whether it's just in life,
it comes off - you don't have anything to prove;
you can just be what you are.

Clint Eastwood


When life's problems seem overwhelming,
look around and see what other people are coping with.
You may consider yourself fortunate.

Ann Landers


Every morning, when we wake up,
we have twenty-four
brand new hours to live - what a precious gift.

Thich Nhat Hanh


Happiness is the consequence of personal effort.
You fight for it, you strive for it, insist upon it
and sometimes even travel around the world
looking for it.
And once you have achieved a state of happiness,
you must never become lax about it,
you must make a mighty effort to keep swimming
upwards into that happiness forever.

Elizabeth Gilbert
(extract from Eat, Pray, Love)


Some stories don't have a clear
beginning, middle and end.
Life is about not knowing, having to change,
taking the moments and making the best of it,
without knowing what's going to happen.
Delicious ambiguity.

Gilda Radner

Famous Budha Quotes





 Famous Buddhist Quotes & Sayings
Quotes By Budha
 
 
  • Neither fire nor wind, birth nor death can erase our good deeds.
  • You only lose what you cling to.
  • Fill your mind with compassion.
  • 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.
  • The Four Reliances
    First, rely on the spirit and meaning of the teachings, not on the words;
    Second, rely on the teachings, not on the personality of the teacher;
    Third, rely on real wisdom, not superficial interpretation;
    And fourth, rely on the essence of your pure Wisdom Mind, not on judgmental perceptions.
  • We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make our world.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Pay no attention to the faults of others,
    things done or left undone by others.
    Consider only what by oneself is done or left undone.
  • What we think, we become.
  • Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one getting burned.
  • Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others.
  • He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.
  • 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
  • Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world.
  • Anger will never disappear so long as thoughts of resentment are cherished in the mind.
  • Anger will disappear just as soon as thoughts of resentment are forgotten.
  • Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
  • Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world.
  • On life's journey Faith is nourishment,
    Virtuous deeds are a shelter,
  • Wisdom is the light by day and Right mindfulness is the protection by night.
  • If a man lives a pure life nothing can destroy him;
    If he has conquered greed nothing can limit his freedom.
  • One of his students asked Buddha, "Are you the messiah?"
    "No", answered Buddha.
    "Then are you a healer?"
    "No", Buddha replied.
    "Then are you a teacher?" the student persisted.
    "No, I am not a teacher."
    "Then what are you?" asked the student, exasperated.
    "I am awake", Buddha replied.
