We are tolerant toward others when we tolerate ourselves. We forgive others when we forgive ourselves. We are prone to sacrifice others when we are ready to sacrifice ourselves.
~ Eric Hoffer - [Sacrifice]

~ Eric Hoffer - [Judgment and Judges]

Kindness can become its own motive. We are made kind by being kind.
