Quotes from Buddhism

The Buddha stresses that to escape from suffering one must not look to others for help, but do it himself.

"Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much
as your own unguarded thoughts."

Develop the mind of equilibrium.
You will always be getting praise and blame,
but do not let either affect the poise of the mind:
follow the calmness, the absence of pride.

-Sutta Nipata

Confused by thoughts,
we experience duality in life.
Unencumbered by ideas,
the enlightened see the one Reality."

- Hui - Neng
