I have re-blogged this post from a teacher, mentor, coach, author… and several more titles under his name. He is known by the name Allan Bukusi and this post demanded to be shared. It will give you some food for thought(Tafakari ya babu). You can find more of him here http://allanbukusiauthor.blogspot.com
JUDGE A MAN
Judge a man, not by what he has not done;
But, by his pursuits, and patience.
Judge a man, not by his name or fame;
But, by his character and courage to live without them.
Judge a man, not by what he never did or did to you;
But, by the humiliation, you put him through.
Judge a man, not because he is poor;
But that he is willing to give.
Judge a man, not by his achievements;
But, by his spirit and sacrifice.
Judge a man, not by his failures;
But by his attempts to rise up again.
Judge a man, not by how much he loves;
But by what he does for others.
Judge a man, not because he is rude to you;
But by what he does for you.
Judge a man, not by his gifts to you;
But by his will to warn you of what will harm you.
Judge a man, and you will find that you are not a judge but a man.
