Happiness will come when you bring happiness to others.

Gyalwang Drukpa

A very good practice for preventing anger in the first place is to become masterful at listening.

Gyalwang Drukpa

To make no mistakes is not in the power of humans; but from their errors and mistakes the wise and the good learn wisdom for the future.

Plutarch

What do we mean when we say that the mind wanders? Simply that thought is everlastingly enticed from one attraction to another, from one association to another, and is in constant agitation. Is it possible for thought to come to an end?

With love, there is no reciting of scriptures, no teacher-student anything, only silly pranks, games that mean nothing, and lots of laughing.

Living our life fully and deeply requires courage. If we cannot be happy right now, we need to ask ourselves why. We need to find out what it is. What’s weighing us down or pulling us away from the present moment?

Thich Nhat Hanh

If you light a lamp for somebody, it will also brighten your path.

Buddha

Be empty, that is all. The perfect people use their mind like a mirror—going after nothing, welcoming nothing, responding but not storing.

Wang Wei

If you really want peace of mind and success in your endeavours, discard self-importance and your ego.

Epictetus

Compassion is a priceless jewel. Care about others at all times. If you cannot help others, at least do no harm.

Dalai Lama
