That was enlightening thanks, but not the sutta I'm looking for the one I can't find is shorter and pretty much just says by doing good bodily verbal and mental acts unskillful qualities decline. Thanks for looking for me.

Also pl. see verse 183 dammapada:
sabba paoassa akaranan
kusalassa upasampada
sacitta pariyo dapanan
etan buddana sasanan.
