    عامل الرجل كما يبدو ، وتجعله أسوأ. لكن عامل الرجل كما لو كان محتملًا ، وتجعله ما يجب أن يكون عليه.

    Behandle einen Mann so, wie er zu sein scheint, und du machst ihn noch schlimmer. Aber behandeln Sie einen Mann so, als wäre er das, was er möglicherweise sein könnte, und Sie machen ihn zu dem, was er sein sollte.
