Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world. By non-hatred alone is hatred appeased. This is a law eternal
In whom there is no sympathy for living beings: know him as an outcast
Should you find a wise critic to point out your faults, follow him as you would a guide to hidden treasure
Should a seeker not find a companion who is better or equal, let them resolutely pursue a solitary course
Delight in heedfulness! Guard well your thoughts!
May all beings have happy minds
Should a person do good, let him do it again and again. Let him find pleasure therein, for blissful is the accumulation of good.”

The world is afflicted by death and decay. But the wise do not grieve, having realized the nature of the world
One is not called noble who harms living beings. By not harming living beings one is called noble
Better it is to live one day seeing the rise and fall of things than to live a hundred years without ever seeing the rise and fall of things.
Live with no sense of ‘mine,’ not forming attachment to experiences
All conditioned things are impermanent—when one sees this with wisdom, one turns away from suffering.
Give, even if you only have a little.
