This is my simple religion: There is no need for temples, there is no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is the temple; the philosophy is loving kindness and compassion.
Today, more then ever before, life must be characterized by a sense of Universal responsibility, not only nation to nation and human to human, but also human to other forms of life.
We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection.
We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.
Where ignorance is our master, there is no possibility of real peace.
Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate kindness and compassion.
With realization of one's own potential and self-confidence in one's ability, one can build a better world.
All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness. The important thing is they should be part of our daily lives.
Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
I find hope in the darkest days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.
If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do no harm to them.
If you have a particular faith or religion, that is good. But you can survive without it.
In the practice of tolerance, one's enemy is the best teacher.
It is very important to generate a good attitude, a good heart, as much as possible. From this, happiness in both the short term and the long term for both yourself and others will come.
Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.
My religion is simple, my religion is kindness.
Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old friend passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend - or a meaningful day.
Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent.
The purpose of or lives is to be happy.
The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness.
Last but not least one of my top favorites:
The ultimate authority must always rest with the individuals own reason and critical analysis.
