Be kind whenever possible. It's always possible.
Treat people as if they are already at their best and that's who they will become.
Stick to your core beliefs and values, but allow yourself to be adaptable to the times.

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
“20 years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover”
But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
For I was hungry, and you gave me food: I was thirsty, and you gave me drink: I was a stranger, and you took me in: Naked, and you clothed me: I was sick, and you visited me: I was in prison, and you came unto me.
Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we you hungry, and fed you? or thirsty, and gave you drink? When saw we you a stranger, and took you in? or naked, and clothed you? Or when saw we you sick, or in prison, and came unto you?
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Since you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me.
Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) wrote, "In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadows to blind those who don't."
“John Wesley’s Rule” does a fair job of summing up his life:
Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as you ever can.
