On Being Human

“Truth is a deep kindness that teaches us to be content in our everyday life and share with the people the same happiness.”

Nourishment

“Silence is the sleep that nourishes wisdom.”

Practice

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough…”

Keep It Simple

“Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification.”

Present Moment

“The more clearly you understand yourself and your emotions, the more you become a lover of what is.”

New Perspective

“I cannot be awake for nothing looks to me as it did before. Or else I am awake for the first time, and all before has been a mean sleep.”

Letting Go

“We can travel a long way and do many things, but our deepest happiness is not born from accumulating new experiences. It is born from letting go of what is unnecessary, and knowing ourselves to be always at home.”

Sharon Salzberg (b.1952)

Teacher of Buddhist meditation
