There are so many precious quotes to share, that can follow oneself during the day and that you can return to in thought and get inspiration and insight from. I have chosen to include the quotations that are in line with my own spiritual development and faith and hope that they also will be enriching for you on your path in life.

“Patience acts as a counterforce to anger. In fact, for every negative state we can identify one which opposes it. Humility opposes pride; contentment opposes greed; perseverance opposes indolence. If we wish to overcome the unwholesome states which arise when negative thoughts and emotions are allowed to develop, cultivating virtue should not be seen as separate from restraining our response to afflictive emotion.”

Dalai Lama
