Five Quotes from The Dalai Lama

Photo found here
 
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.

There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness.

Today, more than ever before, life must be characterized by a sense of Universal responsibility, not only nation to nation and human to human, but also human to other forms of life.
 
We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.

My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.
