Quotes by buddha

Het oog is vergankelijk en niet-duurzaam, evenals het oor en de neus; en ook de tong, het lichaam en de geest.

Van nature zijn zij onderhevig aan het lijden, zelfloos, leeg en hol, zij zijn als het gras of een muur, niet-onafhankelijk.

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
