  1. Greater in battle
    than the man who would conquer
    a thousand-thousand men,
    is he who would conquer
    just one–
    himself.

    - The Buddha

    Dude, this is like gold compressed into a teeny biscuit for your consumption.
    I'm saving this for future reference

  5. This quote isn’t specifically about porn addiction & fapping, but if you read it as if it is, it works great. I made it my signature.

    Whoever is overcome by this wretched and sticky craving, his sorrows grow like grass after the rains.

    But whoever overcomes this wretched craving, so difficult to overcome, from him sorrows fall away like water from a lotus leaf.

    Mahatma Buddha ....is perhaps one of the most gentle and philosophical incarnations of Vishnu
    Some of his quotes are very practical
     
  11. One of my mates let a bird 'peg' him up the arse- disgraceful- I think this quote applies to him most of all.

  12. It's a genuine Zen proverb.

    I am deeply informed by some of the teachings of the Buddha, and venerate them.

    My sacriligeous / light hearted talk is deliberate, with reasons behind it.

    The Buddha is not some external idol to enslave us, at least not for me. Buddha nature is within.
