“On the nature of your thoughts depends the strength of your body, the vigor of your intelligence, the success of your business and the joy that your relationships communicate to other men.”

“Let others think how they want and be what they want. Just don’t allow them to dominate you and decide in the world that is yours alone.”

Psalms 24:3-5:
³ Who shall ascend the mountain of the Lord, or who shall stand in his holy place?
⁴ He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not give up his soul to vanity, nor swear deceitfully.
⁵ He will receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
