Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhārtha Gautama, Shakyamuni Buddha or simply the Buddha, was an ascetic and sage, on whose teachings Buddhism was founded. He is believed to have lived and taught mostly in the eastern part of the Indian subcontinent sometime between the sixth and fourth centuries BCE.

Below are some great quotes by Buddha related to peace and life

1. “The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.”

2. “You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection”

3. “However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?”

4. “There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.”

5. “You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”

6. “No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”

7. “Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”

8. “A man is not called wise because he talks and talks again; but if he is peaceful, loving and fearless then he is in truth called wise.”

9. “If the problem can be solved why worry? If the problem cannot be solved worrying will do you no good.”

10. “Purity or impurity depends on oneself, No one can purify another.”

11. “There is no fire like passion, there is no shark like hatred, there is no snare like folly, there is no torrent like greed.”

12. “Long is the night to him who is awake; long is a mile to him who is tired; long is life to the foolish who do not know the true law.”



13. “True love is born from understanding.”

14. “Just as a snake sheds its skin, we must shed our past over and over again.”

15. “It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.”
