As we think, so we become

Life Is Like That

The thought manifests as the word;The word manifests as the deed;The deed develops into habit;And habit hardens into character.So watch the thought and its wayswith care,And let it spring from loveBorn out of concern for all beings.As the shadow follows the body,As we think, so we become.—Guatama Buddha, DhammapadaPhoto Credit: H.H.

The thought manifests as the word;
The word manifests as the deed;
 The deed develops into habit;
 And habit hardens into character.  
So watch the thought and its ways with care,
And let it spring from love
Born out of concern for all beings.
As the shadow follows the body,
As we think, so we become.

—Guatama Buddha, Dhammapada
