"Every single person you meet is struggling. ... To recognize that everybody you meet, no matter how expensive their suit is or how serious their expression is, they are looking for significance. They are trying to do the best they can - and they fail regularly. And they're within their own particular battle of their own life, so cut them some slack for that. Don't let them off the hook, but recognize the shared nature of being a human being, and let people be themselves."
- Chris Hadfield
