An application that I made to share some of my favorite Buddhist quotes and verses. You need not be a Buddhist or overly-religious to gain spiritual insight from this;-)
Health is the most precious gain and contentment the greatest wealth. A trustworthy friend the best kinsman, and peace the highest bliss.
When one understands that they cause some of their own suffering needlessly, then they can look for the causes in their own life and root them out.
Speak the truth, yield not to anger, when asked give even if you only have a little. By these three means can one reach the presence of the gods.
An evil deed better left undone, for such a deed torments one afterwards. But a good deed is better done, doing which one repents not later.
Easily seen is the fault of others, but one's own fault is difficult to see. Like leaving their faults out in the open while hiding your own, even as a crafty fowler hides behind sham branches.
If for company you find a wise and prudent friend who leads a good life, you should, overcoming all impediments, keep their company joyously and mindfully.
One by one, little by little, moment by moment, a wise person should remove their own impurities, as a silversmith removes his dross from silver.

The wise are controlled in bodily action, controlled in speech and controlled in thought. They are truly well-controlled.
Those who are ever vigilant, who discipline themselves day and night, and are ever intent upon peace, their defilements fade away.
Like a beautiful flower full of color but without fragrance, even so, fruitless are the fair words of one who does not practice them.
Whatever harm an enemy may do to an enemy, or a hater to a hater, an ill-directed mind inflicts on oneself a greater harm.
Those who know the essential to be essential and the unessential to be unessential, dwelling in right thoughts, do arrive at the essential.
