1. Time is precious, waste it wisely

    118

    Do what makes you happy,
    be with someone who makes you smile,
    laugh as much as you breathe
    and love as long as you live.

  2. Peace is something you make

    514

    Peace is not something you wish for,
    it is something you make,
    something you are, something you do,
    and something you give away.

    ~Robert Fulghum

    175

    Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy…this love itself will render both ourselves and our neighbors worthy.

  4. We Must Practice What We Preach

    43

    Like a beautiful flower,
    full of colour, but without scent,
    are the fine but fruitless words
    of those who do not act accordingly.

  6. Impurity

    44

    Life seems easy for one who is shameless,
    who is a crowing hero, a mischief-maker,
    an insulting, impudent, and corrupt person.
    But life seems difficult for one who is modest,
    who always looks for what is pure,
    who is detached, quiet, clear, and intelligent.

Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
