Daily Words of the Buddha ~ November 02, 2014

Gravity  by  aminsedigManopubbaṅgamā dhammā;
manoseṭṭhā manomayā.
Manasā ce pasannena
bhāsati vā karoti vā,
tato naṃ sukhamanveti
chāyāva anapāyinī.

Mind precedes all things;
mind is their chief, mind is their maker.
If one speaks or does a deed
with a mind that is pure within,
happiness then follows along
like a never departing shadow.

Dhammapada 1.2

Gemstones of the Good Dhamma,
compiled and translated by Ven. S. Dhammika
