Improving Yourself

Treat people as if they were what they should be, and you help them become what they are capable of becoming. ~ Goethe

The best advisers, helpers and friends, always are not those who tell us how to act in special cases, but who give us, out of themselves, the ardent spirit and desire to act right, and leave us then, even through many blunders, to find out what our own form of right action is. ~ Phillips Brooks

The healthy, the strong individual, is the one who asks for help when he needs it. Whether he has an abscess on his knee or in his soul. ~ Rona Barrett

The impersonal hand of government can never replace the helping hand of a neighbor. ~ Hubert H. Humphrey

You will find that the mere resolve not to be useless, and the honest desire to help other people, will, in the quickest and delicatest ways, improve yourself. ~ John Ruskin

Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed. ~ Maria Montessori
