My pick would be an embordered sampler that says:

Hell is other people

Sartre


Make it look like the ones we had to make in primary with the little house (I still have mine).

It’s a shortened version of a much longer actual quote, which wouldn’t fit on a needlepoint,

“We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.” Gandhi

All due respect to Mr. Gandhi or whoever may have said that but . . . .

Considering there are 8 billion people on the planet divided into groups with conflicting agendas, I find this quote very Pollyanna-ish and naive. There are more disparate groups on the planet than there have been Gods-- which is saying something.

I could turn it into a "process" for my whole life and not change the world. Getting a vaccination myself had no effect on the anti-vaxxers whatsoever, for example. I did not change their attitude towards me and there is no divine mystery about it.

I have found most people take your kindness to be weakness so the nicer you are the more you are taken advantage of.

I respect that it is our favorite but to me it sounds like something to say when competing in a Miss America pageant.

Yeah well, it got Gandhi shot, but he did change the world with his polyanaish attitude, so there are worse fates.

Well, the war of independence sent two million innocent people to their next incarnations, so I guess he did change the world.

And he paved the way to countless false quotations and even more California bumper stickers. Surely that made a difference.

I am an atheist. I believe in one less god than you. When you understand why you dismiss all other possible gods, then you will understand why I dismiss yours.

I'm not the author of this, but it fits.

I think I'd create a portrait of Joseph Smith. I depict him as deadpan, his left brow hitched up a bit, his face turned three quarters yet staring out he corners of his eyes at the viewer, and the whites of his eyes a barely-discernible blue.

How about Mother Mary with a huge erection? I mean she conceived without regular sex. What's to say she isn't a transgendered woman? First male begetting male.
