Goutham Buddha

  • Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
  • 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.
  • He is able who thinks he is able.
  • We are formed and molded by our thoughts. Those whose minds are shaped by selfless thoughts give joy when they speak or act. Joy follows them like a shadow that never leaves them.
  • You will not be punished for your anger; you will be punished by your anger.
  • He who loves 50 people has 50 woes; he who loves no one has no woes.
  • It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe that lures him to evil ways
  • I never see what has been done; I only see what remains to be done.
  • A jug fills drop by drop.
  • Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.
  • All wrong-doing arises because of mind. If mind is transformed can wrong-doing remain?
