Our needs are few; our wants are many
The busy make the most of time; the diligent enjoy the best of health.
Those who give selflessly are blessed; those who do good deeds are happy.
Cultivate a big heart- but a small ego.
Before you open your mouth to speak, think twice and chew your words carefully. The point is not to hold you peace, but to speak with discretion and prudence.
To criticize less and praise more is a good way to avoid creating negative karma of speech.
Keep your ears and eyes wide open, but mouth tight shut; be quick with your hands and legs, but slow to spend.
Be busy without disorganized, and weary without being dispirited.
Stay at ease under all circumstances, and give whenever conditions allow.
A big duck cuts a big wake; a small duck cuts a small wake. Big or small, each duck will paddle its own way to the other shore- but only if it paddles.
