Be kind to everyone – these days this is a real hard one especially when you surrounded by real pricks.

How can you be kind to Donald Trump?

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle you know nothing about.

This quote has been accredited to Plato many times, but it is thought to come from Ian Maclaren[1].

Look, I know how bloody hard this is – while I do not succeed everytime I am having a real crack at it! My patience and kindness is tested every day as I am a system administrator. I love my job, I can help people and write stuff that helps making life easy for other people.

But yes, when it comes to politicians, child abusers, molestors and other idiots it becomes real hard.
I leave it up to the reader to judge their own participation.

Albert Einstein was ahead of his time in many ways, not only physics.
He recognized very early on that we are all connected.

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

― Albert Einstein
