The source of all good, evil, weal and harm lies with actions, speech and thoughts.
Did you bring your actions, speech and thoughts with you today?
Or have you left them at home?
This is where you must look, right here.
You don’t have to look very far away. Look at your actions, speech and thoughts.
– Ajahn Chah [Living Dharma]
Passion is the cause of blindness, of not seeing, of not knowing, of loss of insight: it is joined with vexation, it does not conduce to Nibbâna.
– Anguttara Nikâya
Restraint with the eye is good,
good is restraint with the ear.
Restraint with the nose is good,
good is restraint with the tongue.
Restraint with the body is good,
good is restraint with speech.
Restraint with the heart is good,
good is restraint everywhere.
A monk everywhere restrained
is released from all suffering & stress.
– Dhammapada 
By day shines the sun;
by night, the moon;
in armour, the warrior;
in jhana, the Brahmin.
But all day & all night,
every day & every night,
the Awakened One shines
– Dhammapada
