Few – and they are wise – are interested in their own business, in their own improvement, in their own mission. A lot of precious time, energy and money are wasted in merely vilifying others. A good organiser is faced with all sorts of hazards. He has to strive to keep his neighbours in good humour; he has to respectfully ignore public criticism and joyously undertake the good task he has set before himself.
From Divine Life by Swami Sivananda
