Thoughts, Words, Actions, Character, Destiny

Watch your thoughts,
They become words.
Watch your words,
They become actions.
Watch your actions,
They become character.
Watch your character,
For it becomes your destiny.
-sometimes attributed to Frank Outlaw, late President of the Bi-Lo grocery stores

I love this quote, for many reasons. Recently, I was at the Texas Library Association conference held in Fort Worth.  One of the sessions that I attended was on "Building Your Ethical Toolkit".  While sitting through the session, the words of Frank Outlaw came to mind as being appropriate for remembering when considering my ethical viewpoint.  I keep this quote on my refrigerator as a daily reminder.
