Bad Friendship Is Like A Cancerous Tumor

Never lose hope in the hour of adversity. Dark clouds bring rain and will soon usher in sunshine.

The one quality that we should practice and develop is contentment. It is the door to happiness and peace on earth.

True friends will never try to please us with words, which are not true.

Stay away from gossip mongers because they will not spare you too.

Friendship of the bad is like having a tumor in the body.

Thirst for wealth can never be quenched.

Wealth earned through wrong means will only bring trouble.

Trials and tribulations polish and smoothen our lives.


A Zen Story

A monk set off on a long pilgrimage to find the Buddha. He devoted many years to his search until he finally reached the land where the Buddha was said to live. While crossing the river to this country, the monk looked around as the boatman rowed. He noticed something floating towards them. As it got closer, he realized that it was the corpse of a person. When it drifted so close that he could almost touch it, he suddenly recognized the dead body - it was his own! He lost all control and wailed at the sight of himself, still and lifeless, drifting along the river's currents. That moment was the beginning of his liberation.
