“What we think, we become. Whatever you feed, its that which will grow. If you watch a lot of porn, you become lustful. If you eat a lot of junk food, you become unhealthy. Everything we feed ourselves, is part of our diet. The company we keep and those we choose to be around. What we choose to watch on TV, the music we listen to, the books or magazines we read, the language we listen to. Even the experiences or ideas we cut ourselves out from. Our social diet, like the food and drink we consume, influences what comes out of us.”

Buddha, Saul Williams, Martin Aylward
