Complaining about others

To a disciple who was forever complaining about others the Master said,
"If it is peace you want,
seek to change yourself, not other people.
It is easier to protect your feet with slippers
than to carpet the whole of the earth."

(Anthony de Mello)

Anthony de Mello (4 September 1931, Bombay, India 2 June 1987, New York) was a Jesuit priest, psychotherapist, public speaker and writer who wrote books on spirituality. He traveled to many countries to study and later to teach, most notably Spain and the United States. The Vatican condemned many of his writings and ideas in 1998.
