Condemned seems a bit strong, but it is Sam...

Another poignant quote from Sam Harris, this from the Moments part of his Waking Up app:

“One of the most mysterious things about the mind is the inordinate power of thoughts. Recognized for what they are, thoughts appear to be utterly without force. But, unrecognized, they seem to totally define the contours of our minds. There is a paradox here that we must keep surmounting. You are not who you think you are, but if you allow your thoughts to go unobserved, you are condemned to be who you think you are.”
