We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
Buddha

Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more; it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
William Shakespeare

I don't need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.
Plutarch

How pleasant it is for a father to sit at his child's board. It is like an aged man reclining under the shadow of an oak which he has planted.
Voltaire

Interesting quotes, all of them. I particularly like Plutarch's view on friendship.

Great quotes, Don. I really like the first one, by Buddha . However, I don't think "pure" is sustainable, but one can change the thoughts.

My favorite is the Lincoln quote, but like them all.
