Start With Yourself


The following words were written on the tomb of an Angelic Bishop....

When I was young and free and my imagination had no limits, I dreamed of changing the world.  As I grew older and wiser, I discovered the world would not change, so I shortened my sights somewhat and decided to change only my country. 

But it, too, seemed immovable.

As I grew into my twilight years, in one last desperate attempt, I settled for changing only my family, those closest to me, but alas, they would have none of it.

And now as I lie on my deathbed, I suddenly realize: If I had only changed my self first, then by example I would have changed my family.

From their inspiration and encouragement, I would have been able to better my country and, who knows, I may have even changed the world. 


  1. Tats a good one....n soo true...everybody talks of changing de world n all but then doesn't it start from ourselves...if u as an individual do not step up first and set an example four urself n others, then I think such people should not expect too much out of life.
    Good on ya dis one.

  2. Header painting is beautiful. :) Her delicate hands and shy eyes make it more gorgeous.

    This post is nice. One must change onself first and the rest of the world will change automatically.

    Best wishes. :)
