That reminds me of the George Washington Carver quote: “How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.”



“Tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand.” -- Chinese proverb
