"Like spring breeze to your neighbor, and like winter frost to yourself."

We should be generous to others and strict with ourselves.


But in reality we are apt to go the opposite way. We often are very exact in finding other people's faults and quite blind to ours. It is because we know very well about the reasons for our own faults, while we know much less, if at all, about the reasons for others' faults.


That is why we have to be generous like spring breeze to others, and severe like winter frost to ourselves, so as to secure the minimum level of fairness. It is the necessary condition for any relationship and dialogue.
