"The thought manifests as the word,
The word manifests as the deed,
The deed develops into habit,
And habit hardens in character,
So watch the thought and its 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"
I saw this quote attributed to the Buddha on a couple of websites, yet I could not find any credible source showing me that this is actually what he said. Did the Buddha really say these words? Are there quotes floating around the internet that are misattributed to the Buddha?
