We are what we think,

having become what we thought.

Like the wheel that follows the cart-pulling ox,

sorrow follows an evil thought.



And joy follows a pure thought,

like a shadow faithfully tailing a man.

We are what we think,

having become what we thought.



three leaves- from The Dhammapada

translated from the Pali
