Happiness- Quote by Buddha

"Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened.  Happiness never decreases by being shared." -Buddha

I love Buddhist quotes, and I especially treasure this quote by Buddha himself.  I think that our tendency toward self-cherishing and thinking we are the most important person in the universe sometimes prevents us from being as compassionate as we could be.  We must remain mindful, focus on our Buddhist beliefs and cultivate compassion for others in order to end our suffering and stop the cycle of samsara.
