It is only imperfection that complains of what is imperfect. The more perfect we are, the more gentle and quiet we become towards the defects of others.
If Virtue and Knowledge are diffused among the People, they will never be enslav'd. This will be their great Security.
Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
John Quincy Adams
Note how good you feel after you have encouraged someone else. No other argument is necessary to suggest that never miss the opportunity to give encouragement.
