Quotes by His Holiness the Dalai lama

Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.

In the practice of tolerance, one's enemy is the best teacher.

To conquer oneself is a greater victory than to conquer thousands in a battle.

Just as we should cultivate gentle and peaceful relations with our fellow human beings, we should also extend that same kind of attitude towards the natural environment. Morally speaking, we should be concerned for our whole environment.

Whether we are rich or poor, educated or uneducated, whatever our nationality, color, social status, or ideology may be, the purpose of our lives is to be happy.

Anything that contradicts experience and logic should be abandoned.
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.
The purpose of all the major religious traditions is not to construct big temples on the outside, but to create temples of goodness and compassion inside, in our hearts.

This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate kindness and compassion. 

We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection
