    That was truly a great quote. Although, we shouldn’t just follow what we want and know, because not all of it will bring goodness to others.

    Our own reasons and beliefs shall still be for the common good. We should not put things in our hands.

    Nothing is so real that this. I believe in my convictions not what people tells me.

    I can relate to this quote so much. So many times I’ve trusted other people over myself and ended up getting disappointed terribly.

    Some of the wisest and deepest words I’ve ever seen. No wonder the Buddha is so much revered.

    We should always trust our gut over what anyone else says. It’s never wrong.

    In the end, it’s all about believing in yourself. Everything just fades away and amount to nothing in one’s life when one does think about it. What you actually feel and think is the only thing that really matters in the end.

    Its a good philosophy to live by. Don’t be a product of other people’s opinions but only yours, because you are also capable of thinking.

    Its always better to question and criticize things rather than blindly accept people’s opinions. It will save you from much heartaches and regrets.

    Definitely we don’t need to be believe everything unless it really makes common sense to us. Some people outrightly spew thrash.

    This is a brilliant quote. I think the very fabric of our existence is knowing what to believe of our own universe. I feel like this would really invigorate people to trust their instincts and live a fulfilling life.

    Believe nothing yet believe your own huh??? This is confusing but I can at least get the gist of it.

    Great quote from a great guru. I am not a Buddhist but Buddha has a lot of wisdom to share to the world.
