Saying someone is stupid
Doesn't make you any smarter.
Saying someone is ugly
Doesn't make you any prettier.
Saying someone is fat
Doesn't make you any skinnier.
Making fun of someone
Doesn't make you any better.
So why do we do it?

" Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again. And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are?
We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move.
You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel?
You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children."
