A fantastic quote with truth to ponder

I am increasingly impressed with many concepts and ideas found in the Buddhist and other Eastern faiths. I was reading an article on the Huffington post and ran across a fantastic quote. I thought I’d share it with whomever might be reading.  It has stimulated some care in my thoughts, words and deeds.

“The thought manifests as the word;
The word manifests as the deed;
The deed develops into the habit;
Habit hardens into the character;
Character gives birth to the destiny
So, watch your thoughts with care,
And let it spring from love
Born out of respect for all beings…”

Venerable Maha Ghosananda
