"To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him."
"Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue."
"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."
"Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life."
"Without health life is not life; it is only a state of langour and suffering - an image of death."
"The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows."
"Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared."
"Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship."
"To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one's own in the midst of abundance."
"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment."
"To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear."
"Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned."
