Seeking truth to gain mutual respect

“One of the most ennobling gestures any of us can make toward another human being is to ask her, sincerely, what she thinks about what we are doing together. What is her take on the truth? When we ask, wanting to hear, we treat the other person with a fundamental respect, and this behavior is then much more likely to be mirrored back to us.”  ~ Morris, Tom. If Aristotle Ran General Motors: The New Soul of Business. First ed. New York, New York: Henry Holt and Company, Inc., 1997. p. 27
