Great people do things before they’re ready. They do things before they know they can do them. Doing what you’re afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks like that - that’s what life is.

There is only one important point you must keep in your mind and let it be your guide. No matter what people call you, you are just who you are. Keep to this truth. You must ask yourself how is it you want to live your life. We live and we die, this is the truth that we can only face alone. No one can help us, not even the Buddha. So consider carefully, what prevents you from living the way you want to live your life?
Gautama Buddha (via purplebuddhaproject)
Truth is not something outside to be discovered, it is something inside to be realized.
Buddha (via purplebuddhaproject)
Trying to understand is like straining through muddy water. Have the patience to wait! Be still and allow the mud to settle.
