The Other Way

Quote

Don’t be hurt or angered by what people say and do. Always try to see what lies behind their point of view. Maybe they are wrestling with a problem of their own – fighting down some secret worry, facing it alone.

If you knew the whole of it perhaps you’d understand, and instead of criticizing lend a helping hand. If you hit back when you’re hurt you make an enemy. Why not try the other way of love and sympathy.

Patience Strong in Flowers of Friendship, 1955
