Thoughts as real as deeds

The materialist believes that he hurts a man when he throws a stone at him, on the other hand he believes that a hate thought he cherishes towards his fellow man, does not hurt. But who really knows the world, knows that much, much stronger effects are caused by a hatred thought than ever can be caused by a thrown stone.
