“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.”
Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai, The Teaching of Buddha

Gautama Buddha
“All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts and made up of our thoughts. If a man speak or act with an evil thought, suffering follows him as the wheel follows the hoof of the beast that draws the wagon.... If a man speak or act with a good thought, happiness follows him like a shadow that never leaves him.”
Gautama Buddha

Robert M. Pirsig
“The place to improve the world is first in one's own heart and head and hands, and then work outward from there.”
Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values

Gautama Buddha
“However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?”
Buddha Siddhartha Guatama Shakyamuni

Mother Teresa
“Peace begins with a smile..”
Mother Teresa
