You become that of which you think.
THOUGHTS ON THOUGHTS
Here are two quotations about thoughts, drawn from teachers of conscious living from ancient times. It is remarkable that each of them says essentially the same thing—suggesting that human beings have had the same essential concerns for a long time:
Your disposition will be suitable to that which you most frequently think upon; for the soul is tinged with the color and complexion of its own thoughts.
Your life is what your thoughts make it.
— Marcus Aurelius
All we are is the result of what we have thought.
The mind is everything. What we think, we become.
