A Few of my favorite Buddhist quotes

"Do not judge yourself harshly. Without mercy for ourselves we cannot love the world."

"Even the muddiest of pools will become clear when left still and undisturbed."

" A day spent judging another is a painful day. A day spent judging yourself is a painful day. You don't have to believe your judgements; they're simply an old habit."

"Those who are AWAKE live in a state of constant amazement."

"Love in the past is only a memory. Love in the future is a fantasy. Only here and now we can truly love."

"The heart is like a garden. It can grow compassion or fear, resentment or love. What seeds will you plant there?"

"Weigh the true advantages of forgiveness and resentment to the heart. Then choose."

"If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete."

"Learn to RESPOND, not REACT."

"When wishes are few the heart is happy. When desire ends, there is peace."

"Stay centered, do not overstretch. Extend from center, return to your center."

"All things are like a river. We can never step into the same river twice."

"In the end what matters most is; how well did you love, how well did you live and how well did you learn to let go?"
