The Majjhima-Nikaya

Abandoning gossip, he abstains from gossip; he speaks at the right time, speaks what is fact, speaks on what is good, speaks on the Dhamma and the Discipline; at the right time he speaks such words as are worth recording, reasonable, moderate, and beneficial.

James Thurber

Let us not look back in anger or forward in fear, but around in awareness.

Anatole France

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.
Hillel

If I am not for myself, then who will be for me? And if I am only for myself, then what am I? And if not now, when?
Sakyamuni

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 be thankful.
HW Longfellow

If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find in each man's life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm any hostility.
Joseph Campbell

I think the person who takes a job in order to live - that is to say, for the money - has turned himself into a slave. We're so engaged in doing things to achieve purposes of outer value that we forget the inner value, the rapture that is associated with being alive, is what it is all about.

If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track, which has been there all the while waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living.
