"We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves."

"In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for [insight into] the truth and have begun striving for ourselves."

"In the sky, there is no distinction between east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe those distinctions to be real."

"It is a person's own mind, not that of some enemy or foe, that lures one to harmful ways." More
