20 Empowering Life Quotes

Guatama Buddha was the man. All he ever wanted was happiness and for people to live their best lives. It were his words and teachings on which Buddhism was founded. 400 years later, his words are still being read, shared and practiced around the world. As a yoga guru, I have been reading a lot about the religion and broadening my thoughts. These are some of his most famous and inspiring quotes. Read and get ready to feel stronger than ever.

1. "Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”

2. “Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”

3. “Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.”

4. “Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”

5. “We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”

6. “The tongue like a sharp knife… kills without drawing blood.”

7. “However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?” Wow, this one.

8. “You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.”

9. “To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.”

10. “No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”
