Quotes from the Buddha: Siddhārtha Gautama's Wisest Sayings

Multiple File Formats

Presented here are 190 of the wisest and most thought-provoking quotes from the Buddha. These quotes are a source of inspiration and motivation. No essays or commentaries, just the words from Buddha himself. For example:

“What you are is what you have been. What you'll be is what you do now.”

“A jug fills drop by drop.”

“There is no path to happiness: happiness is the path.”

“You will not be punished for your anger; you will be punished by your anger.”

“People with opinions just go around bothering one another.”

Gautama Buddha — Siddhārtha Gautama, Shakyamuni, or just the Buddha — was a wise teacher on whose teachings Buddhism was founded. Born as a prince nearly 2,500 years ago in the Himalayan foothills, he taught primarily in northeastern India.

Siddhārtha Gautama is the primary figure in Buddhism, and accounts of his life, discourses, and monastic rules are believed by Buddhists to have been summarized after his death and memorized by his followers. Various collections of teachings attributed to him were passed down by oral tradition, and first committed to writing about 400 years later.

File Size:

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
