" Everyone is smart/stupid, silly/serious, good/bad, sweet/mean, guilty/innocent, ambitious/lazy, happy/sad... People are complex, multi-faceted, and ever-changing. None of us is ever the same from moment to moment. If you must judge others, judge them only on the sum of their moments, the grand total of their lives, not on their actions at a single point in time."
