Not Here To Impress Quotes

But it is not these things which most impress the stranger on his journey into the civil lines, into the old city itself (where he becomes lost and notes the passage of a woman dressed in the burkha in the street of the moneylenders) and then back past the secretariat, the Legislative Assembly and Government House, and on into the old cantonment in a search for points of present contact with the reality of twenty years ago, the repercussions, for example, of the affair in the Bibighar Gardens. What impresses him is something for which there is no memorial but which all these things collectively bear witness to: the fact that here in Ranpur, and in places like Ranpur, the British came to the end of themselves as they were.
— Paul Scott —

That kindness is invincible, provided it's sincere-not ironic or an act. What can even the most vicious person do if you keep treating him with kindness and gently set him straight-if you get the chance-correcting him cheerfully at the exact moment that he's trying to do you harm. "No, no, my friend. That isn't what we're here for. It isn't me who's harmed by that. It's you." And show him, gently and without pointing fingers, that it's so. That bees don't behave like this-or any other animals with a sense of community. Don't do it sardonically or meanly, but affectionately-with no hatred in your heart. And not ex cathedra or to impress third parties, but speaking directly. Even if there are other people around.

— Marcus Aurelius
