Changing the World

“When I was a young man, I wanted to change the World. I found it difficult to change the World, so I tried to change my nation. When I found that I couldn’t change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn’t change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family. Now as an old man I realise the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realise that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have had an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the World.” – (An unknown Monk 1100 AD)
