Top 5 quotes from Siddhartha Buddha
"Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned."
"Neither fire nor wind, birth nor death can erase our good deeds."
"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment."
"It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell."
"In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves."
Top 5 quotes from War & Peace
"Warmaking doesn't stop warmaking. If it did, our problems would have stopped millennia ago."
"A tyrant is always stirring up some war or other, in order that the people may require a leader."
"If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable; and let it come! I repeat, Sir, let it come!"
"It is only necessary to make war with five things: with the maladies of the body, with the ignorances of the mind, with the passions of the body, with the seditions of the city, with the discords of families."
"If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."
