Motivation is something that we all need to carry on with our lives. Reading inspiring quotes on Pinterest the first thing in the morning gets me through the day. So, in this article I am going to share some motivational quotes by the Dalai Lama which I hope will encourage you a bit too.
Dalai Lamas have always been an important figure for Buddhists. They are known to preach and share the knowledge that they sustain to positively influence others. The current Dalai Lama who is the 14th one, Tenzin Gyatso is the most famous of all and is a great spiritual leader. His holiness has written many inspiring books and has quoted various quotes about peace, compassion, Buddhism, confidence and several other topics.
“When you think everything is someone else’s fault, you will suffer a lot. When you realize that everything springs only from yourself, you will learn both peace and joy.”
“When you talk you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen you may learn something new.”
“If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.”
“Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.”
“With realization of one’s own potential and self-confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better world.”
