“Don’t judge a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes.”
~ Cherokee tribe of Native Americans proverb
“You never really know a man until you understand things from his point of view, until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.”
~ Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, J.B. Lippincott & Co., 1960
Often we quickly jump to judgements of others. If we are positive, no harm is done. It’s when we are negative, put others down, or point out “you should have known better” that we should pause first and recall these quotes.
