As we think, so we become

The thought manifests as the word,
The word manifests as the deed,
The deed develops into a habit,
And habit hardens in character,
So watch the thought and it's ways with care,
And let it spring from love,
Born out of concern for all beings...
As the shadow follows the body,
As we think so we become. 
~ Buddha, from the Dhammapada
