Buddhism Sayings

Below, I compiled a list of important Buddhism sayings and quotes:

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.

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

Conquer the angry man by love.
Conquer the ill-natured man by goodness.
Conquer the miser with generosity.
Conquer the liar with truth.

The fool thinks he has won a battle when he bullies with harsh speech,
but knowing how to be forbearing alone makes one victorious.

Having a wider heart and mind is more important than having a larger house.

Happiness does not come from having much, but from being attached to little.

So, the tendency of our childish nature is to take small things too seriously and get easily offended, whereas when we are confronted with situations which have long-term consequences, we tend to take things less seriously

Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile,
but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.

Anything that is created must sooner or later die.

All happiness comes from the desire for others to be happy.
All misery comes from the desire for oneself to be happy.

A sick body with a good heart is more beneficial to future lives than a fit, healthy body that is used for self-cherishing.
