Quotes of Buddha:
“Happiness does not depend on what you have or who you are. It solely relies on what you think”
Buddha was asked, “What have you gained from meditation?” He replied, “Nothing!”
Buddha said, “However, let me tell you what I lost: Anger, Anxiety, Depression, Insecurity, Fear of old age and death.”
