Marcus Aurellius teaches me…

“Whatever man thou meetest with, immediately say to thyself: What
opinions has this man about good and bad? For if with respect to pleasure
and pain and the causes of each, and with respect to fame and ignominy,
death and life, he has such and such opinions, it will seem nothing
wonderful or strange to me if he does such and such things; and I shall
bear in mind that he is compelled to do so.”
