As a man acts, so does he become

As a man acts, so does he become. A man of good deeds becomes good, a man of evil deeds becomes evil. A man becomes pure through pure deeds, impure through impure deeds.

As a man’s desire is, so is his destiny. For as his desire is, so is his will; as his will is, so is his deed; and as his will is, so is his deed; and as his deed is, so is his reward, whether good or bad.

Brihadaranyaka Upanishad
