Sayings of Buddha

“Be kind to all creatures; this is the true religion.”

“If your compassion does not include yourself, It is incomplete.”

“The root of suffering is attachment.”

“The thought manifests as the word: the word manifests as the deed: the deed develops into character. So watch the thought and its ways with care, and let it spring from love born out of concern for all beings.”

“Do not learn how to react, learn how to respond.”

“Believe nothing, no matter where you read it or who has said it, not even if I have said it. Unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.”

“There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth. Not GOING all the WAY and not STARTING.”

“Health is the greatest gift, contentment is the greatest wealth, a trusted friend is the best relative, liberated mind is the greatest bliss.”

– Buddha
