Sometimes, all it takes to change your perspective or open your mind is to hear some wise words from someone else. And who better to offer sound life advice than the Dalai Lama? Here are some inspiring quote we found over at Mind Body Green that we thought you might enjoy:

  1. “Happiness is not something that comes ready made. It comes from your own actions.”
  2. “Everyday, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it.”
  3. “If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a  mosquito.”
  4. “Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.”
  5. “Open your arms to change but don’t let go of your values.”
  6. “Spend some time alone everyday.”
  7. When asked what surprised him about humanity the most, the Dalai Lama replied:“Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that 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.”
