Goethe On Treating Man
Just a quickie little post today.
So how are you treating people today? Are you helping, supporting and/or encouraging them?
Are you giving him/her a hand-out or are you teaching him/her to fish so they can become a productive, self-sufficient member of society?
Don’t make them earn the right for your help, instead help them out of the kindness of your heart because it is the right thing to do.
I found this quote from Goethe awhile back. Hope you enjoy it and believe it as much as I do.
“When we treat man as he is, we make him worse than he is; when we treat him as if he already were what he potentially could be, we make him what he should be.” – Goethe
Therefore encourage one another and build up each other, just as in fact you are doing.
