17 Remarkable Quotes From Dalai Lama For An Enchanting Life

I’ve always been fond of collecting quotations and proverbs in my journal. I keep a diary beside while reading books. Whenever a sentence catches my attention, I write it down. Then I read my journal again and over again in my spare time. This habit has benefitted me many times in providing content for writing.

I’ve recorded a lot of quotes in my journal. Almost every line has left a profound effect on me. I feel so connected to them that sometimes I think these sentences have been written only for me.

As I cannot handle the journal for a long time and lose it, I memorise the quotations by heart.

Quotes play a vital role in strengthening your point of view. Moreover, quoting others while writing or speaking makes you look more intelligent. But that’s the second thing.

The most important thing is to understand them and apply it in your life. Applying the quotes in real life is easier said than done. But by continuously feeding the mind with positive messages, we begin to develop a positive character which later brings a pleasant life.

The two of the modern leaders who have mesmerised me with their words are Dalai Lama and Thich Nhat Hanh. Although their philosophies are almost as same as of Lord Buddha, they’ve imitable personalities.

I’ve written down some of the brilliant sayings of Dalai Lama in my journal that I always wanted to share with you. In this post, I’ve quoted all of them. I hope you’ll try to understand them and apply them to have a pleasant life.
