That may be absolutely unfair; you may have simply stumbled upon the man just at the most awkward moment, and his life in a general way may not be at all coloured with what for you stands for him. It is a very unfair labelling. Look for the good things and label your people by those for a while. I dare say you might—it is not very probable—err on the good side, and give a person a little more credit than is his due, but that would not hurt you or the person.

Let "us follow the lines of the Sixth Sub-race : let us be buddhic to that extent, that we look for the things that are good and not for the things that are evil. It is a thing which you ought to have in mind. That which you think about, you intensify. Fasten your thoughts upon somebody's faults and you intensify that person's faults ; the other thing is also true, fasten your atten- tion on the good qualities and you will intensify them. So I say let us be buddhic to that extent.
