“Thoughts are unsteady, they wander at their own will. The task is to quiet them, and by calming them to find happiness. An untroubled mind, a mind beyond judgments, watches and understands.
Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own thoughts, unguarded. But once mastered, no one can help you as much, not even your father or your mother.”

We are what we think.
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts, we make the world.
The thought manifests as the word;
the word manifests as the deed;
the deed develops into habit;
and the habit hardens into character.
Watch the thought and its way with care, and let it spring from love, born out of concern for all beings.
—Ven. K. Sri Dhammananda
