“Don’t let the shadows of yesterday block out the light that’s shining today.”
“Look at children. Of course they may quarrel, but generally speaking they do not harbour ill feelings as much or as long as adults do. Most adults have the advantage of education over children, but what is the use of an education if they show a big smile while hiding negative feelings deep inside? Children don’t usually act in such a manner. If they feel angry with someone, they express it, and then it is finished. They can still play with that person the following day.” ― His Holiness The Dalai Lama XIV
“Great acts are made up of small deeds.” — Lao Tzu
“There is only one important point you must keep in your mind and let it be your guide. No matter what people call you, you are just who you are. Keep to this truth. You must ask yourself how is it you want to live your life. We live and we die, this is the truth that we can only face alone. No one can help us, not even the Buddha. So consider carefully, what prevents you from living the way you want to live your life?” ― His Holiness The Dalai Lama XIV
“Do not follow the ideas of others, but learn to listen to the voice within yourself.” — Zen Master Dogen

“A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.” — Lao Tzu

“One problem with our current society is that we have an attitude towards education as if it is there simply to make you more clever… The most important use of knowledge and education is to help us understand the importance of engaging in more wholesome actions and bringing about discipline within our minds. The proper utilization of our education and our knowledge is to effect changes from within to develop a good heart.” — His Holiness The Dalai Lama XIV
“The most useful piece of learning for the uses of life is to unlearn what is untrue.” — Greek Philosopher, Antisthenes (444 B.C.–371 B.C.)
