Sidharta Gautama’s Quotes

  • There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.
  • In the end these things matter most:  How well did you love? How fully did you live? How deeply did you let go?
  • All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.
  • However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?
  • All wrong-doing arises because of mind. If mind is transformed can wrong-doing remain?

  • In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then beleive them to be true.
  • Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.
  • Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.
  • The mind is everything. What you think you become.
  • The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows.
  • The tongue like a sharp knife… Kills without drawing blood.
