A King may move a man, a father may claim a son, but remember that even when those who move you be Kings, or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone.

The soul attracts that which it secretly harbours; that which it loves, and also that which it fears; it reaches the height of its cherished aspirations; it falls to the level of its unchastened desires,—and circumstances are the means by which the soul receives its own.

Every thought-seed sown or allowed to fall into the mind, and to take root there, produces its own, blossoming sooner or later into act, and bearing its own fruitage of opportunity and circumstance. Good thoughts bear good fruit, bad thoughts bad fruit.

From As A Man Thinketh, by James Allen

A soul truly and wisely great regards the right to which
the nature of man aspires as consisting in deeds,
not in fame; it chooses to be chief rather than
to seem so. On the other hand, he who depends
on the waywardness of the undiscerning multitude
does not deserve to be reckoned among great men.
Cicero
