I’m not a Buddhist, I’m just a graphic designer who appreciates good advice. Compiled below are some words of wisdom that you may also find insightful.

  • Follow the three R’s: respect yourself, respect others, & have responsibility for your actions.
  • Practicing compassion will benefit both yourself and others.
  • Judge your level of success by what you had to give up in order to achieve it.
  • The mind is everything. What you think you become.
  • The greatest action is not conforming with the world’s ways.
  • The best relationships are the ones where admiration for each other exceeds the need for each other.
  • Share the knowledge you have acquired. It is a way to achieve immortality.
  • During disagreements, it’s best to only deal with the current situation rather than bringing up the past.
  • Living an honorable life will allow you to look back when you are older, and enjoy it a second time.
  • Spend some time alone every day. It will help you clear your mind.
  • When you realize you’ve made a mistake, it’s best to take immediate steps to correct it.
  • Not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
  • He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.
  • You only loose what you cling to.
  • 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 all be thankful.
  • Foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.
  • Practicing compassion will result in happiness for you and others.
  • Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who’ll get burned.
