Motivational Quote - How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong, because someday in your life, you will have been all of these.

Sometimes, we have a bad habit of looking down upon those age groups to which we do not belong. “Kids these days” really aren’t that bad. And try listening to those older than you; they’ll probably have gone through some of the same experiences and have some wisdom to share. We all go through days where life seems to be a struggle, where the road seems a little bumpy. Doesn’t it seem to smooth things out to have somebody there to support you? Why can’t you be that support for somebody else? Maybe a friend or family member is having a hard time with something; you know that your help and assurance would be a positive force for them. Lend them your hand, and come with an open ear. Listen more than you talk and do what you can to make their troubles a little bit easier.
