Quotations or Traditional Sayings

Post by madhusudan » Thu Feb 16, 2017 1:57 pm

I remember a teaching that any truth that agrees with Buddha's teaching is equal to Dharma. Do you know any traditional sayings, or quotes from famous people from history that echo Buddha's truths?

Here's one from my great grandmother: "And this too shall pass."

Another favorite: "First, do no harm." Hippocrates
