Irene C. Kassorla

Dalai Lama

Dalai Lama

Strictly intellectual development without faith and practice, is of no use. It is necessary to combine knowledge born from study with sincere practice in our daily lives. These two must go together

Dalai Lama

Whether one believes in a religion or not,and whether one believes in rebirth or not,there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate kindness and compassion

A life lived without purpose or value, the kind in which one doesn't know the reason why one was born, is joyless and lackluster. To just live, eat and die without any real sense of purpose surely represents a life pervaded by animality. On the other hand, to do, create or contribute something that benefits others, society and ourselves and to dedicate ourselves as long as we live to that challenge-that is a life of true satisfaction, a life of value. It is a humanistic and lofty way to live.

It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.

Marcel Proust

The real act of discovery is not in finding new lands, but in seeing with new eyes.

When one has the feeling of dislike for evil, when one feels tranquil, one finds pleasure in listening to good teachings; when one has these feelings and appreciates them, one is free of fear.

It is impossible to better yourself if you do not know what it means to be better.

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.

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful.

The Buddha

All things appear and disappear because of the concurrence of causes and conditions. Nothing ever exists entirely alone; everything is in relation to everything else.

Pema Chodron

The only reason we don't open our hearts and minds to other people is that they trigger confusion in us that we don't feel brave enough or sane enough to deal with. To the degree that we look clearly and compassionately at ourselves, we feel confident and fearless about looking into someone else's eyes.

Sunday, February 1, 2009


We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
