Recognize It!


a saint

A writer arrived at the monastery to write a book about the master. ‘People say you are a genius, are you?’ he asked. “You might say so” said the master, none too modestly. ‘And what makes one a genius?’. “The ability to recognize”. ‘Recognize what?’. “The butterfly in a caterpillar, the eagle in an egg, the saint in a selfish human being”.

~ Anthony De Mello, One minute wisdom
