Today’s Question by Aart Hilal

Author: Paulo Coelho

One could say there are just two kinds of people: The ones that believe in justice in this world, and the ones that don’t. In which category do you fit? And why?

I think that reducing the world to two kinds of people – those that believe in justice and those that don’t – is too simple. To believe in justice is not the matter. The matter is: to apply Justice, to live according to the laws that you think are valid.

When you start truly thinking about how you are living up to your standards of justice, you start, strangely enough, to perceive the world through other lenses.

The judge of other people’s lives disappears.
