“Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers.”
“Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”
**Dalai Lama XIV
“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you. . . I could walk through my garden forever.”
I have often wished I had time to cultivate modesty… But I am too busy thinking about myself.
“Kind thoughts are rarer than either kind words or deeds. They imply a great deal of thinking about others. This in itself is rare. But they also imply a great deal of thinking about others without the thoughts being criticisms. This is rarer still.”
