BUDDHA’S WORDS OF WISDOM

 
A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker.
A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker.
 
 
A jug fills drop by drop.

All that we are is the result of what we have thought.
 If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him.
 If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him,
like a shadow that never leaves him.
 
 
All things appear and disappear because of the concurrence of causes and conditions.
Nothing ever exists entirely alone; everything is in relation to everything else.
 
All wrong-doing arises because of mind.
If mind is transformed can wrong-doing remain?
 
Ambition is like love, impatient both of delays and rivals.
 
An idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea.
 
Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it,
 unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.
 
Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.
