A different "seven deadly sins" list

I know I've blogged this before but I'm reminded of it because it just showed up on the Daily Meditation page of the Meditation Society of Australia site which I check from time to time:

The Seven Deadly Sins.

Wealth without work, pleasure without conscience, knowledge without character, commerce without morality, science without humanity, worship without sacrifice, and politics without principle.

- MK Gandhi

We really need to think about these things - particularly, in my mind, "commerce without morality" and "politics without principle". If we continue in these two sins we will very likely make human life on earth impossible.

  1. Gandhi always has something to say about how to live that I appreciate. Thank you, Ellie.
