Look at the weaknesses of others with compassion, not accusation. It's not what they're not doing or should be doing that's the issue.

One can spend a lifetime assigning blame, find the cause 'out there' for all the troubles that exist.

The key to full self-expression is understanding one's self and the world, and the key to understanding is learning -- from one's own life and experience.
