Sometimes we don't know what someone is really thinking or how much they're truly hurting. It's a very profound realization. Sometimes you don't know who has eaten that day, or who won't. Perhaps what they're going through while all along they're smiling and pretending their life is okay. If you just stop and try to think what the other person is feeling, it's possible we could all live peacefully. But it's truly a hard notion for people to comprehend.
Users and Takers are a bummer but a part of life.... Lower your expectations and you'll never be disappointed with the negative aspects of human nature. Stay true to your goodness anyway. Good actions manifest into good lives...
Based on a genuine quotation from the essay 'Old Mortality', "Books were the proper remedy: books of vivid human import, forcing upon their minds the issues, pleasures, busyness, importance and immediacy of that life in which they stand; books of smiling or heroic temper, to excite or to console; books of a large design, shadowing the complexity of that game of consequences to which we all sit down, the hanger-back not least.'
