Buddhist practitioner and author Jack Kornfield included this quote in his 1994 book, “Buddha’s Little Instruction Book” — and it was thereafter commonly misattributed to Gautama Buddha himself.

It can be a very different thing to go easy on yourself when something goes wrong. Yet we can’t fully practice compassion until we turn it inward first.
