Dr. Noir here again! I'm not done passing along some of my favorite Dalai Lama quotes!
"Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.”
"Although you may not always be able to avoid difficult situations,you can modify the extent to which you can suffer by how you choose to respond to the situation."
"If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion."
"Whether our action is wholesome or unwholesome depends on whether that action or deed arises from a disciplined or undisciplined state of mind. It is felt that a disciplined mind leads to happiness and an undisciplined mind leads to suffering, and in fact it is said that bringing about discipline within one's mind is the essence of the Buddha's teaching."
