Quote of the week No. 19 : We are what we think

"All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him."


The Buddha.


PS Still cold. At least it's not raining and there are some sunny intervals.

Shame that those who most should take heed of this kind of quote are least likely to understand it

Our own happiness is in our own hands. No use blaming other people if we aren't. Good advice.
