Mona, this is a beautiful quote. And I've found that Buddha did NOT say a lot of the things he's quoted as saying LOL!! I guess people feel it will carry more weight and authority if attributed to a famous spiritual figure.
But truth is truth, and I think it does its own magic.
"Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time, and always start with the person nearest you." ~ Mother Teresa
Sometimes it's hard to know where to start, especially when it seems there are just so many things that need fixing. We may end up spending too much time thinking about what 'needs' to change, and talking about what should be changed without ever actually taking any action. This makes it simple. We just start with those around us.
