Well Said: Making others as you wish them to be

Be not disturbed that you cannot make others as you wish them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be.
Thomas a Kempis, The Imitation of Christ
This is so spot-on that I have a feeling it is in more than one of my quote journals. And that's probably a good thing. There is always that temptation to point the finger at others when what we should be doing is turning a mirror upon ourselves. This quote reminds me so perfectly and simply.
