To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.


Other quotes by Buddha

There has to be evil so that good can prove its purity above it.

Without health life is not life; it is only a state of langour and suffering - an image of death.

We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.

Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule.

Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others.
