Citations for thoughts

Our actions are influenced by our thoughts,
our thoughts are influenced by our culture,
our culture is influenced by where our mind and senses are.
Both of these, we are in total control.

I tend to capture words that inspire me, so I can read and think on them again to ultimately influence my actions on the good path. Some of which, I lost the sources, internet will find it for you, but they are valuable nonetheless, here they are :

The only person you should try to be better than, is the person you were yesterday.
I Bargain with life for a penny.
And life would pay no more
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store.
For life is a just employer
He gives you what you ask.
But once you have set the wages,
Why you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial's hire.
Only to learn dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of life
Life would have willingly paid.
