Hey guys!!! I just finished reading the biography of Gautama Buddha and I got to learn a lot from that. I published blogs on “The Noble Eightfold Path” and “The Four Noble Truths” so make sure you read them because they were awesome. Today, I want to share some famous quotes and sayings of Gautama Buddha so let’s begin with our favorite, Expeknow style.
I don’t know if these quotes are copyrighted or not so please don’t report them, just comment if you have any questions, ideas, problems or suggestions. So, here are some of the best sayings :
~ Thousands of candles can be lighten from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
~ Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intend of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
~ We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
~ It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.
~ To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.
~ Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.
~ It is better to travel well than to arrive.
~ We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, the make the world.
~ You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
~ I do not believe in a fate that falls on man however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.
~ I never see what has been done; I only see what remains to be done.
~ Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others.
~ The foot feels the foot when it feels the ground.
And lastly, the most powerful quote:
~ The mind is everything. What you think you become.
This is it guys. Each quote is very deep and it will take the space of one of my average blogs to explain only one of these quotes. So, if you want their explanation, you can comment it. I hope you learnt something new. This is Atul and you are at Expeknow.
