“If you are unable to find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it?”
Dogen

“Do not be concerned with the faults of other persons. Do not see others' faults with a hateful mind. There is an old saying that if you stop seeing others' faults, then naturally seniors and venerated and juniors are revered. Do not imitate others' faults; just cultivate virtue. Buddha prohibited unwholesome actions, but did not tell us to hate those who practice unwholesome actions.”
Zen Master Dogen

“A fool sees himself as another, but a wise man sees others as himself.”
Dōgen, How to Cook Your Life: From the Zen Kitchen to Enlightenment
