Nuggets of Wisdom from Buddha

20010112-0121ac Earth Touching Precious Buddha


~The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.~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.

~Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.

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

~Do not speak – unless it improves on silence.

~You can explore the universe looking for somebody who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and you will not find that person anywhere.

~Pay no attention to the faults of others, things done or left undone by others.
Consider only what by oneself is done or left undone.
