I find the teachings of the Enlightened One to be  inspirational,  insightful, and helpful. On this page I will share some of my favourites.

From the Dharmapada

So:
The enlightened man--
Discerning, learned,
Enduring, dutiful, noble,
Intelligent, a man of integrity:
Follow him
--one of this sort--
as the moon, the path
of the zodiac stars.

-Dhammapada, 15, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

From the Sutras
 

If you cling to an idea as the inalterable truth, when the truth does come in person and knocks at your door you will not be able to open the door and accept it.

-Udana Sutta
