 The story is told of an old Rabbi:

 “When I was young, I set out to change the world.  When I grew a little older, I perceived that this was too ambitious, so I set out to change my State.  This too, I realised as I grew older, was too ambitious, so I set out to change my Town.  When I realised I could not even do this, I tried to change my family.  Now, as an old man, I know that I should have started by changing myself.  If I had started with myself, then I would have succeeded in changing my family, the Town or even the State and who knows, maybe even the world”.
