We should learn to look at the faults of others only through love's eyes, with charity, patience, and compassion. We do not know the secret history of the lives of others about us. We do not know what piercing sorrows have produced the scars which we see in people's souls. We do not know the pains and trials which make life hard to many with whom we are tempted to be impatient. If we knew all the secret burdens and heart-wounds which many carry hidden beneath their smiling faces, we would be patient and gentle with all men.
J.R. Miller (1840-1912)
