Words from the road

I feel it's worth sharing some of these random quotes that have been crossing my path--either by way of conversation, literature, random signs in Buddhist temple courtyards, scribbles on bathroom walls, what have you--so that they too might give your soul something tasty to munch on.

Dog at the Wat Phra Singh in Chiang Mai

Live simply so that others may simply live. 

Selfishness is the real enemy of peace.

Constant dripping wears away the stone.

Selfishness is the father of all evil.

When money speaks, truth is silent. 

Living without hope is like burying yourself. 

Time and tide wait for no man. 

Anxiety shortens life. 

Crying with the wise is better than laughing with the fool. 

Clean, clear, calm; these are the characteristics of a noble person. 

With mindfulness, a person always prospers. 

Peace is the highest bliss. 

There is more happiness in giving than in taking. 

If you do not hope, you will not find what is beyond your hopes. 

Same same, but different. 

I may have made bold my favorites. Hey, it's my blog!
