Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions.
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.
Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.
With realization of one’s own potential and self-confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better world.
If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.
Someone else’s action should not determine your response.
Happiness doesn’t always come from a pursuit. Sometimes it comes when we least expect it.
Let us try to recognize the precious nature of each day.
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
It is very rare or almost impossible that an event can be negative from all points of view.
The very purpose of our life is to seek happiness.
What we do and think in our own lives, then, becomes of extreme importance as it affects everything we’re connected to.
Give the ones you love wings to fly, roots to come back and reasons to stay.
Anger is the ultimate destroyer of your own peace of mind.
If a problem can be solved it will be. If it cannot be solved there is no use worrying about it.
The ultimate source of happiness is not money and power, but warm-heartedness.

The ultimate authority must always rest with the individual’s own reason and critical analysis.
Although you may not always be able to avoid difficult situations, you can modify the extent to which you can suffer by how you choose to respond to the situation.
Compassion is not religious business, it is human business, it is not luxury, it is essential for our own peace and mental stability, it is essential for human survival.
Where ignorance is our master, there is no possibility of real peace.
It is not enough to be compassionate, we must act.
The goal is not to be better than the other man, but your previous self.
We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.
Whether one is rich or poor, educated or illiterate, religious or nonbelieving, man or woman, black, white, or brown, we are all the same. Physically, emotionally, and mentally, we are all equal. We all share basic needs for food, shelter, safety, and love. We all aspire to happiness and we all shun suffering. Each of us has hopes, worries, fears, and dreams. Each of us wants the best for our family and loved ones. We all experience pain when we suffer loss and joy when we achieve what we seek. On this fundamental level, religion, ethnicity, culture, and language make no difference.
The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
An open heart is an open mind.
Anger or hatred is like a fisherman’s hook. It is very important for us to ensure that we are not caught by it.
The true hero is one who conquers his own anger and hatred.
When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace.
