If you knew the inner life of many of the people you work with and do business with and meet socially in the common days, you would be very gentle with them; you would excuse their peculiarities, their absent-mindedness, their seeming thoughtlessness at times.
Grief makes life hard for very many people.
It is a wonder they can be as genial and loving as they are, in view of the burdens that crush them.
~ J.R. Miller
Do to others as you would have them do to you. Luke 6:31
