Young in Spirit

Who said, "The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts." ?

I like this quote. It implies not only that thoughts are powerful, but also that the color is significant. What is the color of your thoughts? Perhaps color makes a better metaphor than using positive or negative to measure them. The quote comes from Marcus Aurelius Antonius in Ancient Rome 170 A.D.

The things that keep your spirit young help keep you youthful. You must look forward, not behind. You must challenge your body, mind and spirit. Learning new things keeps your mind working. Engaging in hobbies keeps you creative. Prayer and meditation hlep you to continue evolving into a better person.
