Do not search the souls of others until you have first found your own.
When we sleep in our beds our minds are full of dreams. There is no control; thoughts, emotions, and sensations come and go at random. What we do not realize is that this dream state persists when we are awake, just as the stars are in the sky in the daytime, though the light prevents us from seeing them. These dreams influence our actions to an unbelievable extent. We walk about and talk earnestly, write books and make wars, go to church and get drunk, all in a state of sleep.
