Mindfulness Quotes

These mindfulness quotes will inspire you and help you to have a better understanding of how to practice mindfulness. 
 

The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly. -  Buddha

We must each lead a way of life with self-awareness and compassion, to do as much as we can. Then, whatever happens, we will have no regrets. - Dalai Lama

Be happy in the moment, that's enough. Each moment is all we need, not more. -  Mother Teresa

You must live in the present, launch yourself on ever wave,  find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land, there is no other life but this. - Henry David Thoreau

Two thoughts cannot coexist at the same time: if the clear light of mindfulness is present, there is no room for mental twilight. - Nyanaponika There

The practice of mindfulness begins in the small, remote cave of your unconscious mind and blossoms with the sunlight of your conscious life, reaching far beyond the people and places you can see. - Earon Davis

Some people do not know the difference between mindfulness and concentration. They concentrate on what they're doing, thinking that is being mindful. We can concentrate on what we are doing, but if we are not mindful at the same time, with the ability to reflect on the moment, then if somebody interferes with our concentration, we may blow up, get carried away by anger at being frustrated. If we are mindful, we are aware of the tendency to first concentrate and then to feel anger when something interferes with that concentration. With mindfulness we can concentrate when it is appropriate to do so and not concentrate when it is appropriate not to do so. -  Ajahn Sumedho

If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite. - William Blake
                                                          
In the end, just three things matter:
How well we have lived.
How well we have loved.
How well we have learned to let go.
Jack Kornfield
