as a man thinketh
I mean that I really did see myself, and my real self, committing the murders...I mean that I thought and thought about how a man might come to be like that, until I realized that I really was like that in everything except the final actual consent to the action.
--GK Chesterton, "The Secret of Father Brown" in which the humble padre explains his uncanny insight into the criminal mind
