Best Quotes by Jack Kornfield (Top 8)

  1. If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.
  2. In the end, just three things matter: How well we have lived How well we have loved How well we have learned to let go
  3. Peace requires us to surrender our illusions of control. We can love and care for others but we cannot possess our children, lovers, family, or friends. We can assist them, pray for them, and wish them well, yet in the end their happiness and suffering depend on their thoughts and actions, not on our wishes.
  4. The things that matter most in our lives are not fantastic or grand. They are the moments when we touch one another.
  5. You hold in your hand an invitation: to remember the transforming power of forgiveness and loving kindness. To remember that no matter where you are and what you face, within your heart peace is possible.
  6. Let go of the battle. Breathe quietly and let it be. Let your body relax and your heart soften. Open to whatever you experience without fighting.
  7. When we get too caught up in the busyness of the world, we lose connection with one another - and ourselves.
  8. To live fully is to let go and die with each passing moment, and to be reborn in each new one.
