A Little Thought

I saw this quote on a friend's blog and liked it.

“For a long time it had seemed to me

that life was about to begin - real life.

But there was always some obstacle in the way.

Something to be got through first,

some unfinished business,

time still to be served,

a debt to be paid.

Then life would begin.

At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.”

~Fr. Alfred D'Souza

I pasted your Fr. D'Souza quote in a file of quotes.

It ended up next to this quote.
"When you have other people paying for your problems, you have no reason to fix them! When you pass the blame to others, you have no reason to fix your problems!"
