If one man kills a hundred men, and another man masters himself, the second man is the much greater warrior.
Every human being is the author of his own health or disease.
To eat meat is just a habit after we were born. In fact, we are not born to eat meat.

Thought-habits can harden into character. So watch your thoughts.
Never have anything to do with likes and dislikes. The absence of what one likes is painful, as is the presence of what one dislikes. Therefore don’t take a liking to anything. To lose what one likes is hard, but there are no bonds for those who have no likes and dislikes. From preference arises sorrow, from preference arises fear, but he who is freed from preference has no sorrow and certainly no fear.
Those who act with few desires are calm, without worry or fear.

Letting go of our suffering is the hardest work we will ever do.
You can only lose what you cling to.
The secret of happiness lies in the mind’s release from worldly ties.
