No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.
It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.
The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.
However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?
You only lose what you cling to.
Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.
Three things can not hide for long: the Moon, the Sun and the Truth.
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.
There is no path to happiness: happiness is the path.
Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it.
If you truly loved yourself, you could never hurt another.
You will not be punished for your anger; you will be punished by your anger. 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.
If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.
Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.
The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows.
You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
