Buddha Quotes

In the sixth century BC, about 2600 years ago, a prince called Siddhartha Gautama was born. As the young Prince grew up, he began to realize that his sheltered life as a prince could not protect him from suffering. Similarly, he started to understand that is privileged life could not provide the lasting happiness he was seeking. As a result, the young Prince decided to leave his family and his protected life in the palace. His manifold encounters with the world outside the palace began to teach him important lessons about life. Gradually, he began to gain important insights into the nature of suffering. As he became more adept at meditation, he eventually was able to enter a state of mind free from distractions. In this state of deep meditation, he found the lasting happiness he was seeking for. To share with you the valuable and wise lessons of the Buddha, we’ve created the following collection of enlightening Buddha quotes and Buddha sayings.

Throughout the course of his life, Gautama Buddha taught that all our struggles in life originate from the same source. According to him, our frustration, anger, anxiety, sadness, and depression all stem from the same root. According to Buddha, all these issues originate from being heavily attached to something. Consequently, by addressing the root source, helpful changes can be affected.

“The universe itself is change and life itself is but what you deem it”
Buddha

Siddhartha Gautama taught that being excessively attached to something leads to suffering. When we’re too tightly attached to the outcome of a certain action, we may get frustrated when things come differently. When we’re too attached to our possessions, we may anxiously fear that we could lose all of it one day. The same holds true for a variety of other areas of life. In short, when we’re heavily attached to something, some form of discomfort or suffering may arise in our lives.

Therefore, by learning to reduce our attachment to things that don’t really matter, we can gain a great level of freedom in life. Let’s have a look at what else Siddhartha Gautama had to say about life, death, anger, and nonattachment.

Get recover from Addiction with the power of words… check out our list of addiction recovery quotes that provide inspiration and insight into the world of addiction.

Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol or morphine or idealism.

Carl Jung


What fascinates me about addiction and obsessive behavior is that people would choose an altered state of consciousness that’s toxic and ostensibly destroys most aspects of your normal life, because for a brief moment you feel okay.

Moby


Quitting smoking is easy, I’ve done it hundreds of times.

Mark Twain


Addiction begins with the hope that something “out there” can instantly fill up the emptiness inside.

Jean Kilbourne


Addiction is just a way of trying to get at something else. Something bigger. Call it transcendence if you want, but it’s like a rat in a maze. We all want the same thing. We all have this hole. The thing you want offers relief, but it’s a trap.

Tess Callahan


At first, addiction is maintained by pleasure, but the intensity of this pleasure gradually diminishes and the addiction is then maintained by the avoidance of pain.

Frank Tallis


At every stage, addiction is driven by one of the most powerful, mysterious, and vital forces of human existence. What drives addiction is longing — a longing not just of brain, belly, or loins but finally of the heart. Cornelius

Platinga


The mentality and behavior of drug addicts and alcoholics is wholly irrational until you understand that they are completely powerless over their addiction and unless they have structured help, they have no hope.

Russell Brand


I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.

Edgar Allan Poe


You know you’re an alcoholic when you misplace things for like a decade.

Paul Williams


I admire addicts. In a world where everybody is waiting for some blind, random disaster,  or some sudden disease, the addict has the comfort of knowing what will most likely wait for him down the road. He’s taken some control over his ultimate fate, and his addiction keeps the cause of death from being a total surprise.

Chuck Palahniuk


Drugs have taught an entire generation of American kids the metric system.

P.J. O’Rourke


The initial journey towards sobriety is a delicate balance between insight into one’s desire for escape and abstinence from one’s addiction.

Debra L. Kaplan


In the 1960s, people took acid to make the world weird.  Now the world is weird, and people take Prozac to make it normal.

Anonymous


What is addiction, really? It is a sign, a signal, a symptom of distress. It is a language that tells us about a plight that must be understood.

Alice Miller


Addiction doesn’t kill the addict. It kills the family, kids and people who tried to help!

Anonymous


If you know someone who tries to drown their sorrows, you might tell them sorrows know how to swim.

Ann Landers


The first thing in the human personality that dissolves in alcohol is dignity.
