The wisdom of Peter Maurin

“The world would be better off
if people tried to become better,
and people would become better
if they stopped trying to become better off.
For when everyone tries to become better off
nobody is better off.
But when everyone tries to become better
everyone is better off.”

– Co-founder of Catholic Worker movement
