Anger destroys our peace of mind and our physical health. We shouldn’t welcome it or think of it as natural or as a friend.
A calm mind is good for our physical health, but it also enables us to see things more realistically.
Genuine friendship can only be based on trust and affection, which can only arise when there is a mutual sense of concern and respect.
The ultimate source of happiness is not money and power, but warm-heartedness.
Affection is important because it counters anger, hatred and suspicion that can prevent our minds from functioning clearly.
Appreciate how rare and full of potential your situation is in this world, then take joy in it, and use it to your best advantage.
Kindness and a good heart are the underlying foundation for success in this life and making progress on the spiritual path.
We need an approach to ethics which makes no recourse to religion and can be equally acceptable to those with faith and those without.
Don't blame others for your uneasy feelings; blame your own state of mind. This is why altruism brings you greater peace of mind.
The real source of happiness involves one’s state of mind, outlook, and motivation, and one’s level of warmheartedness towards others.

A sense of concern for others gives our lives meaning; it is the root of all human happiness.
The true hero is one who conquers his own anger and hatred.

We often talk about moral values, justice and trust, but the important thing is to put them into effect in our everyday lives.
Even for people who have no spiritual beliefs, a peaceful mind is important.
So long as we are under the control of disturbing emotions, real happiness is hard to find.
