We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

C. S. Lewis
I define a 'good person' as somebody who is fully conscious of their own limitations. They know their strengths, but they also know their 'shadow' - they know their weaknesses.

Christian Nestell Bovee
