We reap what we sow. We are makers of our own fate. None else has the blame, none has the praise. (Swami Vivekananda)
If one thinks of oneself as free, one is free, and if one thinks of oneself as bound, one is bound. (Ashtavakra Gita)
You are what your driving desire is.
As you desire is, so is your will.
As your will is, so is your deed.
As your deed is, so is your destiny. (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad)
The cause of happiness or misery is no other than one’s self; it is an idea of the mind. (Bhagavad Gita)
Man is not bound by any other laws excepting those which he makes for himself. Our thoughts, our words and deeds are the threads of the net which we throw round ourselves for good or evil. Once we set in motion a certain power, we have to take the full consequences of it. This is the law of Karma. (Swami Vivekananda)
