Before you insult somebody you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you insult them you'll be a mile away and have their shoes for free!

"When someone is saved from certain death by a strange concatenation of circumstances, they say that's a "miracle."
But of course if someone is KILLED by a freak chain of events- the oil just there, the safety fence broken just there- that must also be a "miracle."
Just because it's not nice doesn't mean it's not miraculous."

The Dalai Lama when asked what surprised him most about humanity-

"Man, because he sacrifices his health in order to make money, then sacrifices his money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future he does not enjoy the present; the result being he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."

It is more convenient to follow one's conscience than one's intelligence, for at every failure,conscience finds an excuse and an encouragement in itself.That is why there are so many conscientious and so few intelligent people.

And if everyone pursues the enlightenment of The Buddha, who shall they beg for food?

"Today, in many predominately Theravada countries like Thailand, monks still rely on receiving alms for most of their food. The monks leave the monasteries early in the morning. They walk single file, oldest first, carrying their alms bowls in front of them. Laypeople wait for them, sometimes kneeling, and place food, flowers or incense sticks in the bowls. Women must be careful not to touch the monks."

Allow someone else to give once in awhile. It humbles you and lifts them.
