Remain Humble

If you noticed someone in error then correct this person and his mistake in a humble way. If he does not listen to you, blame yourself only; or, even better, do not blame anybody, but continue to be humble.
(Marcus Aurelius, in A Calendar of Wisdom, by Leo Tolstoy, 30 March)

Principles are universal - that is, they transcend culture and geography. They're also timeless, they never change - principles such as fairness, kindness, respect, honesty, integrity, service, contribution. Different cultures may translate these principles into different practices and over time may even totally obscure these principles through the wrongful use of freedom. Nevertheless, they are present. Like the law of gravity, they operate constantly.
(Steven R. Covey, The 8th Habit, p. 46-7)
