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

He who lives only for pleasures, and whose soul is not in harmony, who considers not the food he eats, is idle, and has not the power of virtue -- such a man is moved by mara (evil one), is moved by selfish temptations, even as a weak tree is shaken by the wind.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

The glorious chariots of kings wear out, and the body wears out and grows old; but the virtue of the good never grows old.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

If he makes himself as good as he tells others to be, then he in truth can teach others. Difficult indeed is self-control.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

But truly, Ananda, it is nothing strange that human beings should die.
Buddha
Digha Nikaya.

Whatever is felt is within suffering.
Buddha
Samyutta Nikaya.

This is deathless: the liberation of the mind through lack of clinging.
Buddha
Majjhima Nikaya.

Whatever is subject to origination is all subject to cessation.
Buddha
Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta.

All compounded things are subject to decay. Strive with diligence!
Buddha
Mahaparinibbana Sutta.

The parts and powers of man must be dissolved; work out your own salvation with diligence.
Buddha
Mahaparinibbana Sutta.

Sensual passions are your first army.
Your second is called Discontent.
Your third is Hunger & Thirst.
Your fourth is called Craving.
Fifth is Sloth & Drowsiness.
Sixth is called Terror.
Your seventh is Uncertainty.
Hypocrisy & Stubbornness, your eighth.
Gains, Offerings, Fame, & Status wrongly gained,
and whoever would praise self
& disparage others.
That, Namuci, is your enemy,
the Dark One's commando force.
A coward can't defeat it,
but one having defeated it
gains bliss.
Buddha
Padhana Sutta.

I spit on my life.
Death in battle would be better for me
than that I, defeated, survive.
Buddha
Padhana Sutta, on his battle against personification of temptation to evil.

That army of yours,
that the world with its devas can't overcome,
I will smash with discernment.
Buddha
Padhana Sutta.

Nothing tends toward loss as does an untamed heart.
The untamed heart tends towards loss.
Nothing tends toward growth as does a tamed heart.
The tamed heart tends towards growth.
Nothing brings suffering as does
the untamed, uncontrolled unattended and unrestrained heart.
That heart brings suffering.
Nothing brings joy as does a
tamed, controlled, attended and restrained heart.
This heart brings joy.
Buddha
Anguttara Nikaya.

In a world that has become blind I go to beat the drum of the Deathless.
Buddha
Ariyapariyesana Sutta.

Open are the doors to the Deathless
to those with ears.
Let them show their conviction.
Buddha
Ayacana Sutta.

This itself is the whole of the journey, opening your heart to that which is lovely. Because of their feeling for the lovely, beings who are afraid of birth and death, aging and decaying, are freed from their fear. This is the way you must train yourself: I will become your friend and an intimate of the lovely. To do this I must closely observe and embrace all states of mind that are good.
Buddha
Samyutta Nikaya, The Buddha Speaks by Anne Bancroft.

If a person teaches the way in order to transcend the tyranny of material things and to teach how to transcend feelings, perceptions, impulses, and consciousness--teaching nonattachment with regard to these--then that person can be called a speaker of the way. If he is himself trying to transcend the pull of the material world and to feel nonattachment toward it, then it is fitting to say he is living in accordance with the way. If he is liberated by this transcendence and nonattachment, then you can say he has found nirvana here and now.
Buddha
Samyutta Nikaya, The Buddha Speaks by Anne Bancroft.

A corporeal phenomenon, a feeling, a perception, a mental formation, a consciousness, which is permanent and persistent, eternal and not subject to change, such a thing the wise men in this world do not recognize; and I also say that there is no such thing.
Buddha
Samyutta Nikaya - Buddha, The Word by Paul Carus.

Be it in the past, present, or future, whosoever of the monks or priests regards the delightful and pleasurable things in the world as impermanent, miserable, and without a self, as diseases and cankers, it is he who overcomes craving.
Buddha
Samyutta Nikaya - The Word of the Buddha by Nyanatiloka (Bhikkhu).

Corporeality is transient, feeling is transient, perception is transient, mental formations are transient, consciousness is transient.
Buddha
Samyutta Nikaya - Buddha, The Word by Paul Carus.

Just as a solid rock is not shaken by the storm, even so the wise are not affected by praise or blame.
Buddha
Dhammapada

If a man going down into a river, swollen and swiftly flowing, is carried away by the current - how can he help others across?
Buddha
Sutta Nipata.

One should do what one teaches others to do; if one would train others, one should be well controlled oneself. Difficult, indeed, is self-control.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

Easy to do are things that are bad and harmful to oneself. But exceedingly difficult to do are things that are good and beneficial.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

One truly is the protector of oneself; who else could the protector be? With oneself fully controlled, one gains a mastery that is hard to gain.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

With good will for the entire cosmos, cultivate a limitless heart: Above, below, and all around, unobstructed, without hostility or hate.
Buddha
Metta Sutta.

Overcome the angry by non-anger; overcome the wicked by goodness; overcome the miser by generosity; overcome the liar by truth.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

There are those who do not realize that one day we all must die. But those who do realize this settle their quarrels.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

The friend who is a helpmate,
the friend in happiness and woe,
the friend who gives good counsel, the friend who sympathizes too -
these four as friends the wise behold
and cherish them devotedly
as does a mother her own child.
Buddha
Sigalovada Sutta, Digha Nikaya.

Crushing out of the conceit "I am" -
this is the highest happiness.
Buddha
Udana.

Just as a tree, though cut down, sprouts up again if its roots remain uncut and firm, even so, until the craving that lies dormant is rooted out, suffering springs up again and again.
Buddha
Dhammapada.

Wonderful it is to train the mind so swiftly moving, seizing whatever it wants. Good is it to have a well-trained mind, for a well-trained mind brings happiness.
Buddha
Dhammapada.
