Here are the list of few inspirational Buddhist quotes:

  • To keep the body in good health is a duty otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.
     
  • Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.
     
  • Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the thing which renew humanity.
     
  • 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.
     
  • Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world. By non-hatred alone is hatred appeased. This is a law eternal.
     
  • No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.
     
  • Long is the night to him who is awake; long is a mile to him who is tired; long is life to the foolish who do not know the true law.
     
  • A man is not called wise because he talks and talks again; but if he is peaceful, loving and fearless then he is in truth called wise.
     
  • There is no fire like passion, there is no shark like hatred, there is no snare like folly, there is no torrent like greed.
     
  • However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?
     
  • Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.
     
  • Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.
     
  • There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to the truth; not going all the way, and not starting.
     
  • Those who are free of resentful thoughts surely find peace.
     
  • We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
     
  • To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.
     
  • However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?
     
  • All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.
     
  • Attachment leads to suffering.
     
  • Three things cannot be long hidden; the Sun, the Moon and the Truth.
     
  • You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection
     
  • Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.
