As much as anyone in the universe, you deserve your love and respect.
All things appear and disappear because of the concurrence of causes and conditions. Nothing ever exists entirely alone; everything is in relation to everything else.
I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.
Have compassion for all beings, rich and poor alike; each has their suffering. Some suffer too much, others too little.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.

The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows.
There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.

To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.
Virtue is persecuted more by the wicked than it is loved by the good.
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
Without health life is not life; it is only a state of langour and suffering – an image of death.
