“No matter how hard the past, you can always begin again.” ~ Buddha
— MoveMe Quotes (@MoveMeQuotes) June 13, 2012
This one is a mutation of “No matter how difficult the past, you can always begin again today,” which is actually by Jack Kornfield. Jack’s Buddha’s Little Instruction Book is one of the major sources of Fake Buddha Quotes, presumably because people get confused by the title and think that it’s a book of actual quotations from the Buddha.
In its “hard” version it’s in at least two books, which leads me to wonder how many publishers require their authors to provide sources for quotations?
