fall Buddha


The secret of health for both mind and body
is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future,
but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.
Gautama Buddha


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.
Gautama Buddha


If your compassion does not include yourself,
it is incomplete.
Gautama Buddha


Do not look for a sanctuary in anyone except your self.
Gautama Buddha


No one saves us but ourselves.
No one can and no one may.
We ourselves must walk the path.
Gautama Buddha


There is no path to happiness: happiness is the path.
Gautama Buddha


Your purpose in life is to find your purpose
and give your whole heart and soul to it.
Gautama Buddha


However many holy words you read,
however many you speak, what good will they do you
if you do not act on upon them?
Gautama Buddha


Live purely.
Be quiet.
Do your work with mastery.
Like the moon,
come out from behind the clouds!
Gautama Buddha

  1. How wonderful to have all the Buddha quotes to remind us that loving ourselves is our first “job”. Thanks!

    • You are most welcome, dear Linda! It is easy to love others but not always so easy, is it, to turn that same loving kindness and compassionate grace upon our self. Just know I love you!
