Inspirational Quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh

The following quotes from Thich Nhat Hanh spoke to me.

I hope they do the same for you!

“The past is gone, the future is not yet here, and if we do not go back to ourselves in the present moment, we cannot be in touch with life.” 

“Waking up this morning, I smile. Twenty-four brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion.” 

“Keeping your body healthy is an expression of gratitude to the whole cosmos — the trees, the clouds, everything.” 

“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child — our own two eyes. All is a miracle.” 

“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.” 

“When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That’s the message he is sending.” 

“Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.”

“Understanding means throwing away your knowledge.” 

“Until there is peace between religions, there can be no peace in the world.” 

Cheers and happy evolving.
