Buddha Quotes on Love,
Spirituality and Humanity
Here are some beautiful Buddha quotes on mindfulness, love, spirituality and humanity.
The Buddha teachings are all about understanding that the source of all love and wisdom is within our self.
According to the Buddha teachings, our thoughts determine who we are. We are not the victims of our life circumstances, life circumstances are the effects of our thinking.
Buddha Quotes about Mindfulness:

“We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make our world”.

“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection”.
