Quote# 2 – To Stay Focused

Quote# 5 – Stay Disciplined
"A disciplined mind leads to happiness, and an undisciplined mind leads to suffering."
Quote# 6 – Love And Compassion Are Key Of Happiness
"Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive."
Quote# 7 – Hard Times Make Us Stronger
"Hard times build determination and inner strength. Through them we can also come to appreciate the uselessness of anger. Instead of getting angry nurture a deep caring and respect for troublemakers because by creating such trying circumstances they provide us with invaluable opportunities to practice tolerance and patience."
Quote# 8 – Finding Our Inner Strength
"When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways - either by losing hope and falling into self-destructive habits or by using the challenge to find our inner strength. Thanks to the teachings of Buddha, I have been able to take this second way."
Quote# 9 – Religion, Ethnicity, Culture, And Language Make No Difference
"Whether one is rich or poor, educated or illiterate, religious or nonbelieving, man or woman, black, white, or brown, we are all the same. Physically, emotionally, and mentally, we are all equal. We all share basic needs for food, shelter, safety, and love. We all aspire to happiness and we all shun suffering. Each of us has hopes, worries, fears, and dreams. Each of us wants the best for our family and loved ones. We all experience pain when we suffer loss and joy when we achieve what we seek. On this fundamental level, religion, ethnicity, culture, and language make no difference."
Quote# 10 – Practise Contentment
"When you are discontent, you always want more, more, more. Your desire can never be satisfied. However, when you practice contentment, you can say to yourself, "Oh yes - I already have everything that I really need."
