If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.

There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done.

One is called Yesterday and the other is called Tomorrow. Today is the right day to Love, Believe, Do and mostly Live.

Don't ever mistake my silence for ignorance, my calmness for acceptance or my kindness for weakness. Compassion and tolerance are not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength.

Give the ones you love wings to fly, roots to come back and reasons to stay.

Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.

Our prime purpose in this life is to help others.

And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.

 image quote by Dalai Lama

The planet does not need more "successful people". The planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lover of all kinds.

Just one small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day.

When you think everything is someone else's fault, you will suffer a lot.

When you realize that everything springs only from yourself, you will learn both peace and joy.

I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.

Follow the three R's: - Respect for self.

- Respect for others. - Responsibility for all your actions.

When you talk, you are only repeating what already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new.

The planet does not need more successful people.

The planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of all kinds.

 image quote by Dalai Lama

Don’t let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.

Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.

True happiness comes from having a sense of inner peace and contentment, which in turn must be achieved by cultivating altruism, love and compassion, and by eliminating anger, selfishness and greed.

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.

Choose to be optimistic, it feels better.

A lack of transparency results in distrust and a deep sense of insecurity.

 image quote by Dalai Lama

Choose to be optimistic, it feels better.

The purpose of our lives is to be happy.

Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

Instead of wanting more, give thanks for the blessings you already have.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

If someone does not smile at you, be generous and offer your own smile.

Nobody needs a smile more than the one that cannot smile to others.

Foolish, selfish people are always thinking of themselves and the result is always negative. Wise persons think of others, helping them as much as they can, and the result is happiness. Love and compassion are beneficial both for you and others. Through your kindness to others, your mind and heart will open to peace.

 image quote by Dalai Lama

Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.

Share your knowledge. It is a way to achieve immortality.

A heart full of love and compassion is the main source of inner strength, willpower, happiness, and mental tranquility

If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation

We often add to our pain and suffering by being overly sensitive, over-reacting to minor things, and sometimes taking things too personally.

Happiness mainly comes from our own attitude, rather than from external factors.

Anger cannot be overcome by anger. If someone is angry with you, and you show anger in return, the result is a disaster. On the other hand, if you control your anger and show its opposite - love, compassion, tolerance and patience - not only will you remain peaceful, but the other person's anger will also diminish.

 image quote by Dalai Lama

What is love ? Love is the absence of judgment

The challenge today is to convince people of the value of truth, honesty, compassion and a concern for others.

Just as ripples spread out when a single pebble is dropped into water, the actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects.

Light must come from inside. You cannot ask the darkness to leave; you must turn on the light.

I have found that the greatest degree of inner tranquility comes from the development of love and compassion. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being. Cultivating a close, warmhearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It is the ultimate source of success in life.

My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.

Today, as we wish each other a Happy New Year, let us determine to be more sincere, compassionate, warm-hearted human beings, trying to make our world a more equal place. That way we'll actually make it a happy year.

 image quote by Dalai Lama

Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.

When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace.

If you don't love yourself, you cannot love others.

You will not be able to love others. If you have no compassion for yourself then you are not able of developing compassion for others.

Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.

The period of greatest gain in knowledge and experience is the most difficult period in one's life.

Sleep is the best meditation.

We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection.

 image quote by Dalai Lama

The purpose of out lives is to be happy.

Compassion is not religious business, it is human business, it is not luxury, it is essential for our own peace and mental stability, it is essential for human survival.

We must never forget that it is through our actions, words, and thoughts that we have a choice.

I describe myself as a simple Buddhist monk. No more, no less.

Old friends pass away, new friends appear.

It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend - or a meaningful day.

The way to change others' minds is with affection, and not anger.

The most essential thing in life is to establish an unafraid, heartfelt communication with others.

 image quote by Dalai Lama

Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.

I remain convinced that most human conflicts can be solved through genuine dialogue conducted with a spirit of openness and reconciliation.

The problems we face today, violent conflicts, destruction of nature, poverty, hunger, and so on, are human-created problems which can be resolved through human effort, understanding and the development of a sense of brotherhood and sisterhood. We need to cultivate a universal responsibility for one another and the planet we share.
