Leave behind the passive dreaming of a rose-tinted future. The energy of happiness exists in living today with roots sunk firmly in reality's soil.
it is impossible to build one's own happiness on the unhappiness of others. This perspective is at the heart of Buddhist teachings.
Life is painful. It has thorns, like the stem of a rose. Culture and art are the roses that bloom on the stem. The flower is yourself, your humanity. Art is the liberation of the humanity inside yourself.
A great human revolution in just a single individual will help achieve a change in the destiny of a nation and, further, can even enable a change in the destiny of all humankind.
Even if things don't unfold the way you expected, don't be disheartened or give up. One who continues to advance will win in the end.
A man is not called wise because he talks and talks again; but if he is peaceful, loving and fearless then he is in truth called wise.
The Way is not in the sky; the Way is in the heart.
Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. You’ve got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it.
Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything - anger, anxiety, or possessions - we cannot be free.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Many people think excitement is happiness.... But when you are excited you are not peaceful. True happiness is based on peace.
