Until you have formed the habit of looking for the good instead of the bad there is in others, you will be neither successful nor happy.
To accuse others for one's own misfortunes is a sign of want of education. To accuse oneself shows that one's education has begun. To accuse neither oneself nor others shows that one's education is complete.
Until you have learned to be tolerant with those who do not always agree with you, you will be neither successful nor happy.

He ate and drank the precious Words, his Spirit grew robust; He knew no more that he was poor, nor that his frame was Dust.
