I hold it true that thoughts are things
They’re endowed with bodies, breath and wings
And that we send them forth to fill
The world with good results, or ill
That which we call our secret thought
Speeds forth to earth’s remotest spot
Leaving its blessings or its woes
Like tracks behind it as it goes.
We build our future thought by thought
For good or ill, yet know it not
Yet, so the universe was wrought
Thought is another name for fate
Choose, then, thy destiny and wait
For love brings love and hate brings hate
~ Henry Van Dyke
