Artemis:  It is often quoted as a verse from the Dhammapada.  
It’s said to be a liberal translation of verse 165: By oneself indeed is evil done and by oneself is one defiled; by oneself is evil not done and by oneself is one purified. Purity and impurity depend entirely on oneself; no one can purify another.
