Neither fire nor wind, birth nor death can erase our good deeds.

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.

Anger will never disappear so long as thoughts of resentment
are cherished in the mind. Anger will disappear just as soon as
thoughts of resentment are forgotten.

Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others.
He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.

An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a
wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an
evil friend will wound your mind.

Words have the power to both destroy and heal.
When words are both true and kind, they can change our world.

Meditation brings wisdom; lack of mediation leaves ignorance.
Know well what leads you forward and what hold you back,
and choose the path that leads to wisdom.

If a man possesses a repentant spirit his sins will disappear,
but if he has an unrepentant spirit his sins will continue and condemn
him for their sake forever.

Friendship is the only cure for hatred, the only guarantee of peace.

It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.

Everything is changeable, everything appears and disappears;
there is no blissful peace until one passes beyond the agony of life and death.

On life's journey faith is nourishment, virtuous deeds are a shelter,
wisdom is the light by day and right mindfulness is the protection
by night. If a man lives a pure life, nothing can destroy him.

Our theories of the eternal are as valuable as are those which
a chick which has not broken its way through its shell might
form of the outside world.

Be a lamp unto yourself. Work out your liberation with diligence.

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.

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