If you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
On being approval (or disapproval) of others
“Some say I’m a good person, some say I’m a bad person, it doesn’t matter. As long as my own motivation or thinking is honest, sincere. That’s important.
Actually, Buddha taught don’t care what others are saying. If at one time someone praises you, you should think “I also have critics”. And if someone gives you a lot of criticism, then you should think “oh but some people are praising me.” So it doesn’t matter. Paying too much attention to such things is silly.”
On conflict and suffering
“All suffering is caused by ignorance. People inflict pain on others in the selfish pursuit of their own happiness or satisfaction.”
