20 thoughts on “Believe Nothing Quote

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

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

  3. 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.

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

  5. Nice quote, only God is worthy of my 100% believe, the humanly nature is prone to falsehood, God help us

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

  7. 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.

  8. This is so true…Most people in the name of religion believe the most absurd and stupid thing ..things that are not in agreement with common sense..No wonder a lot of people are delusional

  9. 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.

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

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

  12. 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.
