Food for thought #11

“The child of a great man need not be a great man; greatness is not transmitted through the generations. Every man ultimately makes or destroys his own legacy”

 

“Life would continue, with joys and sorrows, triumphs and tragedies, rising and falling like the waves of the sea. It is up to us to respond wisely, enjoy simple pleasures unshaken by the inevitable endless turmoil of the world”

 

“Only when there is undiluted compassion for everyone, even our worst enemies, is ego truly conquered”

 

“The point of existence is not to accumulate merit, but to attain wisdom”

 

“Conflict comes from rage, rage comes from fear, and fear comes from lack of faith”
