If we speak or act with an evil thought, pain follows us, as the wheel follows the foot of the ox that draws the carriage.

All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts, it is made up of our thoughts.

If we speak or act with a pure thought, happiness follows us, like a shadow that never leaves us.

—Buddha Shakyamuni
