The Buddha Principle

I've been assisting my friends with their relationships. It is not going as well as one might guess. 

Yesterday a friend passed along an internet quotation from "Buddha"… 

It turns out, of course, that it was not a quotation from Buddha. 

Soon, nobody will have ever said or written anything. There will be too much evidence for it.

But I liked it, it was timely:

In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.

Be wary of trite life summations by Gandhi and Buddha, and all others. Remember that there are no writings of Socrates, so it's always safe to quote him online and elsewhere.

Nothing is simple, except perhaps these quotations. Nothing is just something else.

Be wary of all things, even fear.
