When the time came that a young knowledgeable chasid had to leave the halls of learning for the business world, the entered the study of Rabbi Shmuel and asked, "With what does one leave?" "Make this your guiding rule,"replied Rabbi Smuel.
Whenever you observe failings in others, know that they exist within yourself. Whenever you observe posiiteve qualities in others, implant them within yourself.
As the Baal Shem Tov teaches, Divine Providence menas that if HaShem arranges that one should encounter a particular person at a particular time, there is a reason for it. Everyone schould thus be a teacher from whom one can learn something. One who does not believe in this principle is a non-believer, G-d forbid.
