My hubby likes to research things and write about it. He has done hundreds of papers since I have known him and he is very well informed about our government, politics, the world affairs and such. But he recently has researched  Buddhism and Hinduism.  The similarities are stunning and the references to Christianity are interesting.

If you ever want a copy of his writings let me know and I can e mail anything he has written about to you. Ask and you shall receive!

But the weather is gorgeous today and I don't want to turn my blog into a political soapbox or anything so I will share some quotes from these religions with you. Choose your favorite and share it with me. You can also share any of your own favorites here too.

I will start out silly as he came across a page of funny Confucius quotes. This one cracked me up, "Man who lay woman on ground gets peace on earth." I am not a dirty minded girl but this made me laugh!

 1. "Silence is a true friend who never betrays."

2. "Do not impose on others what you yourself do not desire."

3. "He who speaks without modesty will find it difficult to make his words good."

4. ""Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life."

5. "Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall."

6. "We should feel sorrow, but not sink under its oppression."

7. "Wherever you go, go with all your heart."

8. "When you are laboring for others let it be with the same zeal as if it were for yourself."

9. "No matter how busy you think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to      self-chosen ignorance."

10. "The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential...these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence."

1. "Holding on to angry is like  grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned." Buddha

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

3. "I never see what is done, I only see what remains to be done."

4. "It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways."

5.  "Just as a candle can not burn without fire, men can not live without a spiritual life."

6. "Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without."

7. "The tongue  like a sharp knife, kills without drawing blood."

8. "There has to be evil so good can prove its purity above it."

9. " What we think we become."

10. "He is able who thinks he is able."

1. "Can two walk together unless they agree?"  Amos 3:3 The Word of God

2. " Jesus Christ is the same  yesterday, today and forever."  Hebrews 13:8

3. "It is God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose." Phillipians 2:13

4. "So do not worry, saying, :What shall we eat?" or "What shall we drink?" or What shall we wear?" Matthew 6:31

5.""But the Lord is faithful who will establish you and guard you from the evil one." 2 Thessalonians 3:3

6. "But the Lord said to Samuel,"Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for God sees man not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance , but the Lord looks at the heart." I Samuel: 16:7

7. "Furthermore, if two lie own together  they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone?" Ecclesiastes 4:11

8. "Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you." Jeremiah 1:5

9. " In the Lord I take refuge. " Psalm 11:1

10. "Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him and he in God." I John 4:15

I hope you enjoy this post today.
