The mind is everything. It is in the mind alone that one feels pure or impure. A man first makes his own mind guilty and then sees another’s fault. Can you injure anybody by enumerating his faults? You only injure yourself. I cannot see anybody’s shortcomings. If a man does a trifle for me, I try to remember that. To see faults in others! Forgiveness is a great religious austerity. There is no virtue higher than forbearance.
