I found this today quite by accident and was very moved by it:
Every single person has at least one secret that would break your heart. If we could just remember this, I think there would be a lot more compassion and tolerance in the world.
This is from The Secret Lives of Men and Women compiled by Frank Warren. It is a collection of contributions to the PostSecret project. According to its website, "PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard." What would happen if we all just assumed that everyone we meet has a heartbreaking secret and give each person the benefit of the doubt when we don't understand his or her behavior? Wouldn't it be wonderful if other people did that for us?
