Buddha Quotes 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6

The greatest impurity is ignorance.
Free yourself from it.
Be pure.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

Free from passion and desire,
You have stripped the thorns from the stem.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

Happiness or sorrow -
Whatever befalls you, Walk on
Untouched, unattached.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

Be quick to do good.
If you are slow,
The mind, delighting in mischief,
Will catch you.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

Does the spoon taste the soup?
A fool may live all his life
In the company of a master
And still miss the way.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

Cross over to the father shore,
Beyond life and death.
Do your thoughts trouble you?
Does passion disturb you?
Beware of this thirstiness
Lest your wishes become desires
And desire binds you.
Quieten your mind.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

Your work is to discover your work
And then with all your heart
To give yourself to it.
Buddha

Do not live in the world,
In distraction and false dreams.
Outside the dharma.

How long the night to the watchman,
How long the road to the weary traveller,
How long the wandering of many lives
To the fool who misses the way.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

You are far from the end of your journey.
The way is not in the sky.
The way is in the heart.
See how you love.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

It is not iron that imprisons you
Nor rope nor wood,
But the pleasure you take in gold and jewels,
In sons and wives.
Soft fetters,
Yet they hold you down.
Can you snap them?
Buddha
Dhammapada.

The rain could turn to gold
And still your thirst would not be slaked.
Desire is unquenchable
Or it ends in tears, even in heaven.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

If the traveller cannot find
Master or friend to go with him,
Let him travel alone
Rather than with a fool for company.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

Few cross over the river.
Most are stranded on this side.
On the riverbank they run up and down.
But the wise man, following the way,
Crosses over, beyond the reach of death.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

Follow the way of virtue.
Follow the way joyfully
Through this world and on beyond!
Buddha
Dhammapada.

The fool laughs at generosity.
The miser cannot enter heaven.
But the master finds joy in giving
And happiness is his reward.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

If you are happy
At the expense of another man's happiness,
You are forever bound.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

You are a seeker.
Delight in the mastery
Of your hands and your feet,
Of your words and your thoughts.
Delight in meditation
And in solitude.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

It is you who must make the effort.
Masters only point the way.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

If you are filled with desire
Your sorrows swell
Like the grass after the rain.
But if you subdue desire
Your sorrows shall fall from you
Like drops of water from a lotus flower.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

If you kill, lie or steal,
Commit adultery or drink,
You dig up your own roots.
And if you cannot master yourself,
The harm you do turns against you Grievously.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

If he is a good man,
A man of faith, honoured and prosperous,
Wherever he goes he is welcome.
Like the Himalayas
Good men shine from afar.
But bad men move unseen
Like arrows in the night.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

Thirty-six streams are rushing toward you!
Desire and pleasure and lust...
Play in your imagination with them
And they will sweep you away.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

While a man desires a woman,
His mind is bound
As closely as a calf to its mother.
As you would pluck an autumn lily,
Pluck the arrow of desire.
For he who is awake
Has shown you the way of peace.
Give yourself to the journey.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

One man denies the truth.
Another denies his own actions.
Both go into the dark.
And in the next world suffer
For they offend truth.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

If desires are not uprooted,
Sorrows grow again in you.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

The wise man delights in the truth
And follows the law of the awakened.
The farmer channels water to his land.
The fletcher whittles his arrows.
And the carpenter turns his wood.
So the wise man directs his mind.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

Master your senses,
What you taste and smell,
What you see, what you hear.
In all things be a master.
Of what you do and say and think.
Be free.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

He who goes naked,
With matted hair, mud-bespattered,
Who fasts and sleeps on the ground
And smears his body with ashes
And sits in endless meditation-
So long as he is not free from doubts,
He will not find freedom.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

He who lives purely and self-assured,
In quietness and virtue,
Who is without harm or hurt or blame,
Even if he wears fine clothes,
So long as he also has faith,
He is a true seeker.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

Live joyfully,
Without desire.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

A good friend who points out mistakes and imperfections and rebukes evil is to be respected as if he reveals a secret of hidden treasure.
Buddha
The Teachings of Buddha, Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai.

A wise man, recognizing that the world is but an illusion, does not act as if it is real, so he escapes the suffering.
Buddha
The Teachings of Buddha, Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai.

An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.

The Teachings of Buddha, Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai.
