This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
In the practice of tolerance, one’s enemy is the best teacher.
My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.
The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.
We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.
