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

—Buddha

You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.

—Buddha

All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What you think you become.

—Buddha

Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.

—Buddha
