I love a good Ralph Waldo Emerson quote.

Anyone who uses the word "behooves" is a favorite of mine!

What or whom do you worship?

Whatever or whomever it is, forms you.

This is how Emerson puts it:

"A person will worship something – have no doubt about that.

We may think our tribute is paid in secret in the dark recesses of our hearts – but it will out.

That which dominates our imaginations and our thoughts will determine our lives and character.

Therefore, it behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are worshipping we are becoming.

(Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1803 – 1882)
