Karma is simple.
It’s “what goes around comes around.”
It’s also “be kind and generous and people will be kind and generous to you.”
And people seem to agree with this.
According to research, 65% of people in the USA believe in karma.
And I’m one of those people too. What about you?
I’ve read thousands of quotes since 2004.
Here are 65 of the best karma quotes I’ve collected.
What’s my goal?
To help you improve your life, your attitude toward others, and your mindset.
You’ll discover authors like Buddha, da Vinci, Lao Tzu, and more.
