There are some people whose turbulent waves of behaviors will drown you no matter how well you think you can swim.

faronmckenzie:

Be thankful for closed doors, detours, and roadblocks. They protect you from paths and places not meant for you.

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

Practice leaving things be. Let others be themselves—who are we to judge?—and let us concentrate on improving our own minds and our own lives instead.

Gyalwang Drukpa

Give quietly; don’t make a song and dance about it.

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

Think of how unsettled you tend to feel after an angry outburst.

It is only by understanding suffering that we truly understand happiness.
