Becoming Human, Jean Vanier

“How easily dazzled and deceived we are by job titles, degrees, expensive clothing or suave demeanors. Don’t make the mistake of assuming that political leaders, celebrities, the wealthy or people with artistic or intellectual gifts are necessarily happy.”

“The real essence of good is only with  things under your own control. Keep this in mind and you wont find yourself feeling envious and pitfully comparing yourself and your accomplishments of others. Stop aspiring to be anyone other then your own best self: for this does fall within your control.”
