The mind is everything. What you think you become.
An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.
You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
