Dhammapada 36 [Khuddaka Nikaya]

3 - Cittavagga, The Mind
3 - Ukkanthitabhikkhu Vatthu
Sududdasam sunipunam,

cittam rakketha medhavi,
cittam guttam sukhavaham.

36: The mind is very difficult to see, very delicate and subtle; it moves and lands wherever it pleases. The wise one should guard his mind, for a guarded mind brings happiness.
