Lovely & Inspiring
It shows everyone has a gift and a talent, and you need to look for that gift or talent whenever you meet someone, not matter their status, class, or appearance. Everyone is important in their own way, something we often overlook.

I love this. It points to how sacred and important everyone is.
Everyone matters
I learned to treat everyone I meet with respect, regardless of the status according to them by society. Every person from the most holy and prestigious,To The most humble, contributes to the world in their own way. Everyone has life experiences which deserve to be validated . Furthermore, everyone has learned lessons over the course of their lives . Consequently, it is possible to learn something from everyone we come in contact with provided we are willing to respect every person we meet without judgment.

Treat everyone around you well, everyone can teach you something but you must be open
