  • Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible. Awareness of death is the very bedrock of the entire path. Until you have developed this awareness, all other practices are obstructed.

  • Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.
  • My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.
  • Sleep is the best meditation.
  • Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend—or a meaningful day.

  • You can transplant a heart, but you cannot transplant a warm heart.
