Some samples... 1 2 3 4 5 6
Master Huiguo told me,
'If you know your own mind (just as it really is), you know the Buddha's mind.
If you know the Buddha's mind, you know the minds of all beings.
Knowing the identity of these three minds is Great Awakening.'

Bhikkhu Bodhi's In the Buddha's Words is aimed mainly at lay folk. Excellent compilation!
