Zen Quote

If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present. ~Lao Tzu

Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become action.
Watch your actions, they become habits.
Watch your habits, they become character.
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.

Those who look only at themselves see little.
Those who justify themselves are not distinguished.
Those who brag have no merit.
The work of prideful people will not endure.
