It's unrealistic to think that the future of humanity can be achieved through prayer or good wishes alone; what we need is to take action.
We need friendship, which depends on trust. And that depends on concern for others, defending their rights, and not doing them harm.
This planet is our only home; we are all responsible for taking care of it. I’m happy to see leaders now taking climate change seriously.
Creating a better world will require will-power, vision and determination. And for that we need a strong sense that humanity is one family.
If you are honest, truthful, and transparent, people trust you. If people trust you, you have no grounds for fear, suspicion or jealousy.
Without technology humanity has no future, but we have to be careful that we don’t become so mechanised that we lose our human feelings.
Anger, hatred and jealousy never solve problems, only affection, concern and respect can do that.
Whether technology's effect is good or bad depends on the user. It's important that we shouldn't be slaves to technology; it should help us.
It’s unrealistic to think that the future of humanity can be achieved only on the basis of prayer, what we need is to take action.
Loving is of even greater importance than being loved.
Being aware of a single shortcoming within yourself is far more useful than being aware of a thousand in someone else.
Many think that happiness is to be found outside ourselves in material things, but actually happiness is something that comes from within.
A person who practices compassion and forgiveness has great inner strength, whereas aggression is usually a sign of weakness.
More important than being loved is to love.
Most of our problems are related to the mind, so we have to work to reduce our destructive emotions.
If we remember the oneness of humanity and think of each other as brothers and sisters we can overcome that potential for violence.
Physical comfort alone does not bring inner peace. We create inner peace within the mind.
When you help others, do so out of respect. Don't look down on them. Serve other human beings with a compassionate intent.
Changing the world is up to us. If each of us tries, the next generation may see a happier, more peaceful world emerge.
