Blaming everyone but ourselves.

The Archangel from Tobit, as retold by Frederick Buechner, explaining how we blame suffering on everyone but ourselves.

“When terrible things do happen, they fail to understand that for the most part they have brought them down on their own heads. They prefer to think that it is time itself that is terrible and that the terrible things are only another method by which the Holy One afflicts them for their sins.”
