This is a genuine Buddha quote. It’s the 6th verse of the Dhammapada:
Some do not understand
that we must die,
But those who do realize this
settle their quarrels.
~ The Buddha
This is a genuine quote from the Buddhist scriptures. It’s from the Dhammapada:
“If with a pure mind a person speaks or acts, happiness follows them like a never-departing shadow.” The Buddha
This striking verse is found in the Magandiya Suta in the Sutta Nipata, which is generally held to be one of the oldest texts in the Pali canon.
Bhikkhu Thanissaro translates this as:
“Those who grasp at perceptions and views
go about butting their heads in the world.”
Fausböll, a 19th century pioneer translator, has:
“But those who grasped after marks and philosophical views, they wander about in the world annoying people.”
“Those attached to the notion ‘I am’ and to views
Roam the world offending people.”
The translator notes that “I am” is not in the quotation, but that its inclusion is warranted by material nearby.
The original Pali is:
Saññaca diṭṭhiñca ye aggahesuṃ
Te ghaṭṭayantā vicaranti loketi.
My rendition would be:
Those who cling to perceptions (saññā) and views (diṭṭhi)
Wander (vicarati) the world offending (ghaṭṭeti) people.
[Added later: Bhikkhu Varado’s translation, which I just discovered, is almost identical to mine: “Those attached to perception and views / roam the world offending people.”]
This is a genuine quote from the Buddhist scriptures. It’s from the Mangala Sutta.
“To support mother and father, to cherish partner* and children, and to be engaged in peaceful occupation — this is the greatest blessing.”
*In the original it’s “wife,” rather than partner. The language has been changed to make it more inclusive.
“To support mother and father, & cherish partner & children—this is the greatest blessing.” Buddha

This is a genuine Buddha quote. It’s from the Dhammapada.
Just as a solid rock is not shaken by the storm, even so the wise are not affected by praise or blame.
From the Dhammapada, verse 227:
“They blame those who remain silent, they blame those who speak much, they blame those who speak in moderation. There is none in the world who is not blamed.”
“They blame those who remain silent … who speak much … who speak in moderation.” The Buddha
“There is none in the world who is not blamed.” The Buddha
