It’s the best thing to do

14 December 2020

When you meet people, force yourself to esteem them more than they actually deserve. Greet them warmly. Praise them.  When they leave, say nothing but the best things about them. In this way, you’ll make them better than they are. Let this way of doing things be typical of you. In other words, always be ready to defend other people and to honor them.
