    There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children.

    Nelson Mandela
    Or, at an individual level:

    "The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good."
    — Samuel Johnson

    and

    "He never yet no villainy ne said
    In all his life, unto no manner wight.
    He was a very perfect gentle knight."
    — Geoffrey Chaucer

    and, reputedly,

    "I don't trust anyone who's nice to me but rude to the waiter. Because they would treat me the same way if I were in that position."
    — Muhammad Ali

    (and, of course, Luke 18:16.)

    It's a nice thought, but he does need to put it into practice.
    It is a nice thought indeed. I don't know much about Eminem.

    One of the truest signs of maturity is the ability to disagree with someone while still remaining respectful.

    The future is created and negotiated, and is not a slave to the past events
    in a person’s life.

    My standard reply when someone asks "How are you doing?"

    Me: "I'm doing pretty good, but I'm almost over it."

    “In the middle of life, death comes
    to take your measurements. The visit
    is forgotten and life goes on. But the suit
    is being sewn on the sly.”
