All the joy the world containsHas come through wishing happiness for others.All the misery the world containsHas come through wanting pleasure for oneself.

-Shantideva
Shantideva

Those desiring to escape from suffering hasten right toward suffering. With the very desire for happiness, out of delusion they destroy their own happiness as if it were an enemy

Shantideva
The source of all happiness lies in thinking of others.
Shantideva

If you can solve your problem, what is the need of worrying? If you cannot solve it, what is the use of worrying.

Shantideva
May I be like a guard for those who are protectorless, A guide for those who journey on the road. For those who wish to go across the water, May I be a boat, a raft, a bridge.
Shantideva

It is not possible to control all external events; But, if I simply control my mind what need is there to control other things?

Shantideva
The hostile multitudes are vast as spaceWhat chance is there that all should be subdued? Let but this angry mind be overthrownAnd every foe is then and there destroyed
Shantideva

Take advantage of this human boat; Free yourself from sorrow's mighty stream! This vessel will be later hard to find.The time that you have now, you fool, is not for sleep!

Shantideva
That which is seen and that which is touched are of a dream-like and illusion-like nature. Because feeling arises together with the mind, it is not [ultimately] perceived.
Shantideva

All the happiness there is in this world Arises from wishing others to be happy. And all the suffering there is in this world Arises from wishing oneself to be happy.

Shantideva
Penetrative insight joined with calm abiding utterly eradicates afflicted states.
