In my constant search for inspiration through the words of thought leaders, past and present, I discovered this powerful quotation that strengthened my compassion and empathy toward my fellow human beings.

It has given me a better sense of who are and why we are here.

May it do the same for you.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a great battle.

While the words are often attributed to Plato, there is further evidence that they belong to a first century philosopher named, Philo of Alexandria.
