Change yourself, change the world

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself” – Leo Tolstoy

It’s necessary, and Leo Tolstoy (author of the book Anna Karenina) has mentioned it already. Even though he died already way back in 1910, this quote is still very much applicable in the world today. I didn’t live back then, but I dare to say that it is even more applicable now.

There are many things that need to be changed in the world; however, these cannot be changed in we don’t change ourself first. Following this quote, I will add my view on the world; how I see it, how I would want to change it, how I think it can be changed.
