"No matter what kind of day you are having, you are doing the best you can with it and so is everyone else. The cranky bank teller may be getting a divorce. The woman who ignored you yesterday may be self-conscious about her appearance. The man begging on the street may have lost all his money to a fraudster. The motorist that pushed in may be on his way to an emergency. The girl who absent mindedly served you at the supermarket may be dreaming of a better life. The woman crying in a corner may be seriously ill. Have compassion, firstly for yourself and then for others."
