Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Whether we are in the city, the countryside, or the wilderness, we need to sustain ourselves by choosing our surroundings carefully and nourishing our awareness in each moment.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We should live every day like people who have just been rescued from the moon.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “If we continue to hold on to a dream for something in the future, we lose the present moment. And if we lose the present, we lose everything.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Your good intentions are not enough; you have to be artful. We may be filled with goodwill; we may be motivated by the desire to make the other person happy, but out of our clumsiness, we make them unhappy. Walking, eating, breathing, talking, and working are all opportunities to practice creating happiness inside you and around you. Mindful living is an art, and each of us has to train to be an artist.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “If you can’t accept your body and your mind, you can’t be a home for yourself. Many young people don’t accept who they are, and yet they want to be a home for someone else. But how can they be if they’re not yet a home for themselves?”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We are not noble by birth. We are noble only by virtue of the way we think, speak, and act.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The problem is whether we are determined to go in the direction of compassion or not. If we are, then can we reduce the suffering to a minimum? If I lose my direction, I have to look for the North Star, and I go to the north. That does not mean I expect to arrive at the North Star. I just want to go in that direction.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Whatever the tasks, do them slowly and with ease, in mindfulness. Don’t do any task in order to get it over with. Resolve to do each job in a relaxed way, with all your attention. Enjoy and be one with your work. Without this, the day of mindfulness will be of no value at all. The feeling that any task is a nuisance will soon disappear if it is done in mindfulness. Take the example of the Zen Masters. No matter what task or motion they undertake, they do it slowly and evenly, without reluctance.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We cannot be by ourselves alone. We can only inter-be with everything else in the cosmos.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The way to suffer well and be happy is to stay in touch with what is actually going on; in doing so, you will gain liberating insights into the true nature of suffering and of joy. NO.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “If you walk with true awareness of every step, without having a goal to get anywhere, happiness will arise naturally. You don’t need to look for happiness.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “A wave has a right to live her life as a wave, but she must also learn to live her life as water because she is not only a wave. She is also water. And water lives without the fear carried by the wave.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “In the process of meditation, fetters are undone; internal blocks of suffering such as resentment, fear, anger, despair, and hatred are transformed; relationships with humans and nature become easier; freedom and joy can penetrate us. We become aware of what is inside and around us;.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Even if we have time, we don’t come home to ourselves. We try to keep ourselves constantly entertained – watching television, socialising, or using alcohol or drugs – because we don’t want to experience that suffering all over again.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “A real love letter is made of insight, understanding, and compassion. Otherwise it’s not a love letter. A true love letter can produce a transformation in the other person, and therefore in the world. But before it produces a transformation in the other person, it has to produce a transformation within us. Some letters may take the whole of our lifetime to write.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Suffering has its beneficial aspects. It can be an excellent teacher.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We all exist as part of a wonderful stream of life.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Everyone wants to be happy, and there is a strong energy in us pushing us toward what we think will make us happy. But we may suffer a lot because of this. We need the insight that position, revenge, wealth, fame, or possessions are, more often than not, obstacles to our happiness. We need to cultivate the wish to be free of these things so we can enjoy the wonders of life that are always available – the blue sky, the trees, our beautiful children.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Ask yourself, “Who can I make smile this morning?” This is the art of creating happiness.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “See that the most essential thing is life and that killing or oppressing one another will not solve anything.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “What are you ruminating on? Old suffering?”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “You discover that the main cause of your suffering is the seed of anger in you, because it has been watered too often, by yourself and by other people.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Being rich is an obstacle to loving. When you are rich, you want to continue to be rich, and so you end up devoting all your time, all your energy, in your daily life to stay rich.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We can walk in such a way that we arrive with each step – not walking just to get somewhere else.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “When we surround ourselves with people who are committed to understanding and loving, we’re nourished by their presence and our own seeds of understanding and love are watered. When we surround ourselves with people who gossip, complain, and are constantly critical, we absorb these toxins.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Without suffering, we do not have the opportunity to cultivate compassion and understanding; and without understanding, there can be no true love. So.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “When you touch deep understanding and love, you are healed.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Suppose you want something very much. You think that if you don’t get that something, happiness won’t be possible. You get caught in that idea. But, in reality, there are people who have that thing who are miserable, and there people who don’t have that thing who are perfectly happy.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “During the past few years I have avoided tiring myself and losing my breath. I must take care of my body, treat it with respect as a musician does his instrument. I apply nonviolence to my body, for it is not merely a tool to accomplish something. It itself is the end.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “My dear friends, my dear disciples, don’t take refuge in anything outside of you.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We all lose when we think that everything people in our party do and say is right and everything people in another party do and say is wrong. This is simply not true. If we think, speak, and act only along party lines, we operate like a machine without insight, without understanding, without compassion.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Listen Bhikkhus, just as a buffalo boy recognizes each of his own buffaloes, a bhikkhu recognizes each of the essential elements of his own body. Just as a buffalo boy knows the characteristics and tendencies of each buffalo, a bhikkhu knows which actions of body, speech, and mind are worthy and which are not. Just as a buffalo boy scrubs his animals clean, a bhikkhu must cleanse his mind and body of desires, attachments, anger, and aversions.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Many of us slog through life without conscious awareness or intention. We set ourselves a course and we barrel ahead, without stopping to ask whether this path is fulfilling our most important goals. That’s partly because many of us believe that happiness is not possible in the here and now. We think we need to struggle now so that we will be happy in the future. So we postpone happiness and try to run into the future and attain the conditions of happiness that we don’t have now.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “In everyone there’s a continuous desire and expectation; deep inside, you still expect something better to happen. That is why you check your email many times a day!”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Mindfulness is the continuous practice of touching deeply every moment of daily life. To be mindful is to be truly present with your body and your mind, to bring harmony to your intentions and actions, and to be in harmony with those around you.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We may think that if we ignore our fears, they’ll go away. But if we bury worries and anxieties in our consciousness, they continue to affect us and bring us more sorrow.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “There is no distinction between means and ends. There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way. There is no way to enlightenment, enlightenment is the way.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The most effective way to show compassion to another is to listen, rather than talk.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “In the West, we are very goal oriented. We know where we want to go, and we are very directed in getting there. This may be useful, but often we forget to enjoy ourselves along the route.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Life is real; it’s not a dream when mindfulness is there.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Our idea of happiness may be the very thing that’s preventing us from being happy.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The best position for practicing this is lying down. You focus your attention on a part of your body, such as your heart. As you breathe in, you become aware of your heart, and as you breathe out, you smile towards it. You send it your love, your tenderness.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We are imprisoned in our small selves, thinking only of the comfortable conditions for this small self, while we destroy our large self.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The truth is already in you. You only need to open yourself – body, mind, and heart – so that his or her teachings will penetrate your own seeds of understanding and enlightenment. If you let the words enter you, the soil and the seeds will do the rest of the work.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “My actions are my only true belongings.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Why wander all over the world looking for something you already have? You are already the richest person on Earth.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Even when we’re sitting still, with no external stimuli, an endless internal dialogue may be going on in our head. we’re constantly consuming our thoughts. Cows, goats, and buffalo chew their food, swallow it, then regurgitate and rechew it multiple times. We may not be cows or buffalo, but we ruminate just the same on our thoughts – unfortunately, primarily negative thoughts. We eat them, and then we bring them up to chew again and again, like a cow chewing its cud.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “When we know how to be at peace, we find that art is a wonderful way to share our peacefulness.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “May we find ways to live more simply in order to have more time and energy to change the system of injustice that exists in the world.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We may have suffered a lot because of our attachment to those things, but we don’t have the courage to release them; it doesn’t feel safe to do so. But it may be that we continue to suffer because of our attachment to those things. It may be a person, a material object, or a position in society, anything. We think that without that person or thing we will not be safe, and that is why we’re caught by it.”
