I think having an original thought is as good as it gets.
I think wisdom should have more value than wealth.
I think self-control is the most important discipline.
I think a good think is a great way to pass the time.
I think that only through thinking will we evolve.
I think happiness is the best habit.
I think the art is in the thinking.
I think therefore I become.
I think therefore I create.

That is what I thought in 2010.

I no longer think we become what we think.
I think we become what we are rewarded for.
I think we are rewarded not to think, but to repeat.
Not to discover but to memorize. Not to innovate but to imitate.
To allow others to think for us. Today we become what others think.

The weapons of the purposeful are courage, tolerance, determination perseverance,
honor, self-control. As our tolerance and courage grows, we will discover that all who govern their own minds have the goal of harmony.
