Dalai Lama

Daily Buddhism Quotes

Remain silent, and you sink into a realm of shadows; speak, and you fall into a deep pit. Try, and you’re as far away as sky from earth; give up, and you’ll never attain. Enormous waves go on and on, foaming breakers flood the skies who’s got the bright pearl that calms the oceans?

-I Ching
