Buddha: Conquer yourself

Greater in battle than the man who would conquer a thousand-thousand men, is he who would conquer just one: himself.

Better to conquer yourself than others.

Buddha

Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhārtha Gautama, Shakyamuni, or simply the Buddha, was a sage on whose teachings Buddhism was founded. A native of the ancient Shakya republic in the Himalayan foothills, Gautama Buddha taught primarily in northeastern India. Buddha means "awakened one" or "the enlightened one." "Buddha" is also used as a title for the first awakened being in an era. In most Buddhist traditions, Siddhārtha Gautama is regarded as the Supreme Buddha (Pali sammasambuddha, Sanskrit samyaksambuddha) of our age.
