better life motivation

Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present
moment.
An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your
body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.
The tongue like a sharp knife… Kills without drawing blood.
There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the
way, and not starting.
Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at
someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure,
joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best
relationship.
It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is
yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.
However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they
do you if you do not act on upon them?
In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of
their own minds and then believe them to be true.
I never see what has been done; I only see what remains to be done.
