"Be kind; for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."

"This man beside us also has a hard fight with an unfavoring world...
With strong temptations... with doubts and fears...
With wounds of the past that have skinned over, but which smart when touched.
It is a fact... however surprising.
And when this occurs to us we are moved to deal kindly with him...
To bid him to
be of good cheer...
To let him understand that we are also fighting a battle.
We are bound not to irritate him... nor press hardly upon him...
Nor help his lower self."      
-- Rev. John Watson
