How can there be Buddha quotes if Buddha does not even exist?

Why do everybody always quote buddah sentences? How can he say things like that if he never existed?

Example :

“Hatred does not cease through hatred at any time. Hatred ceases through love. This is an unalterable law.” – Buddha

I don’t see any Zeus or Medusa quotes

To say that Buddah doesn’t exist is one thing. Nirvana means blowing out after all and there is also the concept in Zen buddhism of tada — or just. To say Sidhardtha Gautama, the Prince who renounced the world to become Enlightened did not exist is something else again. I shall frankly just say about him what i say about these arguments of Jesus — five hundred years later in Jesus’s time books were the property of the very affluent. Every page meant you had to kill a lamb and prepare its skin or you had to import papyrus reeds… Read more »

When the section of the six reincarnation because only after the rise to four holy community.

Sure? Is that so? Look in the real world. Decode this lyrics ” You’ll see ” “Wonderful wonderful” “Wonderful life” “Time after time” “Don’t know much” “Wonderful world” “Just another day” “What a wonderful world” “Mama Mia” “Nobody told me” “I can see clearly now? “Dirty old man” Simple common sense? Was it not that Buddha was Gautama Buddha an Indian like you and me back in the past in time? Was it not his hear-say only from the Book of the Dead was dead and wrong, was dead and buried, was long gone in time? Was left with empty… Read more »

As opposed to Jesus, the Buddha, Siddartha Gautama, has many more recorded mentions of his life outside of holy books and apparitional sightings. He most certainly did live.

There was a buddha his name was Siddhartha Gautama, he was a prince in India and he came up with a philosophy, it was:Life has suffering. People suffer because of desire. To end suffering end desire by following the eightfold path. This is Buddhism, buddha means enlightened one. So yea Buddha was real because there is all this information about him.

Buddhist believe that anyone can be Buddha and there can be multiple Buddha. Buddha is not a person, rather I guess you can say a spiritual state in religious success. For example, Siddhartha Gautama found the Buddha within him.
