21 Life Truths From The Buddha

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. – Buddha

Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth. – Buddha

No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path. – Buddha

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. – Buddha

You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.- Buddha

The mind is everything. What you think you become. – Buddha

There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting. – Buddha

To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear. – Buddha

Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace. – Buddha

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. – Buddha

It is better to travel well than to arrive. – Buddha

Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life. – Buddha

Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill. – Buddha

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without. – Buddha

Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely. – Buddha

He who gives away shall have real gain. He who subdues himself shall be free; he shall cease to be a slave of passions. The righteous man casts off evil, and by rooting out lust, bitterness, and illusion do we reach Nirvana. – Buddha

However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them? – Buddha

Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship. – Buddha

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. – Buddha

The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows. – Buddha

In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves. – Buddha
