Gautama Buddha quotes


– Illustrated by pictures I’ve made in Malaysia, Myanmar (Burma) and Thailand –




Happiness does not depend on what you have or who you are. It solely relies on what you think. 




The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.




In the end
these things matter most:
How well did you love?
How fully did you live?
How deeply did you let go?
 




Three things cannot hide for long: the Moon, the Sun and the Truth.



  
Find your own light.




There is no path to happiness: happiness is the path.




  You are your own master, you make your own future. 




                                      Conquer the angry one by not getting angry; conquer the wicked by goodness; conquer the stingy by generosity, and the liar by speaking the truth.




The one who has conquered himself is a far greater hero than he who has defeated a thousand times a thousand men.




Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.



You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.






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