And Today the Buddha!
Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned. -Buddha.
The thought manifests as the word. The word manifests as the deed. The deed develops into habit. And the habit hardens into character. So watch the thought and its ways with care. And let it spring from love, born out of concern for all beings. -Buddha.
As the fletcher whittles and makes straight his arrows, so the master directs his straying thoughts. -Buddha.
All that we are is the result of what we have thought. -Buddha.
You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection. ~Buddha
There is no fire like passion, there is no shark like hatred, there is no snare like folly, there is no torrent like greed. ~Buddha
Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind. ~Buddha
Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill. ~Buddha
Let yourself be open and life will be easier. A spoon of salt in a glass of water makes the water undrinkable. A spoon of salt in a lake is almost unnoticed. ~Buddha
Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule. ~Buddha
