Confession: I AM A QUOTE JUNKIE! Seriously. I love quotes. Since I was a little girl I cannot count the number of notebooks that I have filled solely with quotes. Strange? Maybe. Truth is, I STILL DO IT!!! Yep. I do.
Some days I just need some motivation. Other days I need to know that someone else has felt the same way I am feeling. Then there are days that I just need the beauty of another’s words rolling off my lips. Ok, ok, is that a little to artsy, and weird? Maybe that is true too.
When I am down, when I am lonely, when I am emotional, when I feel lost, when I feel infinite…all of these are times that I find myself reaching for the quotes. Quotes bring me peace, motivation, new mantras, new outlooks. I just love them ok?!?!
I’ve been reading a lot on Buddha and his thoughts. His quotes are classics. I know that some of these will be familiar, but I hope that you find motivation for your mind, body and soul in # of my favorite Buddha quotes
“The mind is everything. What you think you become.”
“In the sky, there is no distinction of east & west; people create distinctions out of their own minds & then believe them to be true.”
“The darkest night is ignorance.”
“True love is born from understanding.”
“If your passion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.”
“Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely.”
“Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts.”
