The good you find in others is in you too. The faults you find in others are your faults as well; after all to recognize something you must know it. The beauty you see around you is your beauty. See the best in others and you will be your best. Give to others and you give to yourself. Appreciate beauty and you will be beautiful. Admire creativity and you will be creative. Love and you will be loved. Seek to understand and you will be understood. Listen and your voice will be heard.
