Dog's Tail

This world is very crooked. It is like the tail of
a dog. As soon as you take away your hands it
will again become crooked. So many yogis,
teachers, saints and prophets came into this
world and preached. Still it is crooked; it is in the
same state. Therefore, do not bother much about
reforming this crooked world. This can never be
done. Reform yourself first, then the whole world
can be reformed. How can you help the world
when you yourself are weak and ignorant. It will
be like a blind man leading another blind man.
Both must fall into a deep abyss.

- Swami Sivananda
