The Buddha was one of the most important people to ever live. He established a religion (or philosophy) that has inspired countless millions of people to live more mindfully and embrace non violent action. The following are some of our favorite quotes from the Buddha himself.
"Be where you are; otherwise you will miss your life."
"Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace."
"The mind is everything. What you think you become."
"Even as a solid rock is unshaken by the wind,
so are the wise unshaken by praise or blame."
"Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most."
"Meditate… do not delay, lest you later regret it."
"Life is so very difficult. How can we be anything but kind?"
"Ardently do today what must be done. Who knows? Tomorrow, death comes."
"If you find no one to support you on the spiritual path, walk alone."
"Doubt everything. Find your own light."
"Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without."
"All that we are is the result of what we have thought."
"When you realize how perfect everything is,
you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky."
"It is better to travel well than to arrive."
"Radiate boundless love towards the entire world."
"Let all-embracing thoughts for all beings be yours."
