Until he extends his circle of compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace.
A man does not have to be an angel in order to be saint.
Happiness? That's nothing more than good health and a poor memory.
It is man's sympathy with all creatures that first makes him truly a man.
Any religion or philosophy which is not based on a respect for life is not a true religion or philosophy.
Every man has to seek in his own way to make his own self more noble and to realize his own true worth.
When people have light in themselves, it will shine out from them. Then we get to know each other as we walk together in the darkness, without needing to pass our hands over each other's faces, or to intrude into each other's hearts.
One who gains strength by overcoming obstacles possesses the only strength which can overcome adversity.
