Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. […] Why do you see the speck in your neighbour’s eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? Or how can you say to your neighbour, “Let me take the speck out of your eye”, while the log is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbour’s eye.*
(Jesus of Nazerath)
Seek out people who aren’t afraid of making mistakes and who, therefore, do make mistakes […] they are precisely the kind of people who change the world.**
Prutsen is doing something of little significance that doesn’t change the world but changes ours.
The thing is, when we change our world, we end up changing the worlds of others.
When we resist changing our worlds, what we end up doing is erecting fences that keep others out and, inadvertently, keep us in.
(**From Paulo Coelho’s Aleph.)
