A jug fills drop by drop. Buddha

As a child, Siddhartha the Buddha, was troubled by some of the same thoughts that children today have. They wonder about birth and death. They wonder why they get sick and why grandfather died. They wonder why their wishes do not come true. Children also wonder about happiness and the beauty in nature.

Because the Buddha knew what was in the hearts of children and human kind, he taught everyone how to live a happy and peaceful life. Buddhism is not learning about strange beliefs from faraway lands. It is about looking at and thinking about our own lives. It shows us how to understand ourselves and how to cope with our daily problems.

Three things cannot be long hidden:

 

the sun, the moon, and the truth.
Buddha

    All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.
    Buddha

    An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.

    Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.

    However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?

    The book’s focus was to be the interaction that Lazzaro and his roommates had with Anthony around the 31-day period after Caylee went missing.

    Hmmm….that first quote you gave in your post, Three things that cannot remain hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth. That’s gonna be a problem for Felon Anthony even if she has suppressed the truth with all of her lies. All of Buddha’s quotes that you have mentioned will be a problem for her…ah! What the hell does she care! So long as it looks good on her, right?!

    Buddha is a quack!

    Now how ’bout some Dr. Seuss??

    Horton: A person’s a person no matter how small
    Grinch: His heart was three sizes too small
    Sneetches: Sneetches are Sneetches.
    And no kind of Sneetch is the best on the beaches.
    Cat in the Hat: Tell me what would you do, if your mother asked you?

    “When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”

    “What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”

    “I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.

    Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.”
    — A.A. Milne
