Though it is not absolutely clear who penned (or spoke) these words, most attribute the line to Plato.
I’ve posted them before, but they are worth posting again:
‘Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.’
In the midst of my own pain from being hurt by others, as well as in the midst of seeing others hurt, this quote regularly comes to mind. It strikes me at my core.
They are all needed. Each of us needs these.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
